Kale with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Bacon (Allen and Nirelle)

Garlic (chopped)
Roasted pine nuts
Bacon bits
Olive oil
Plain yogurt or sour cream

Kale (get that? Kale. When is the last time you cooked it? Never? Us, too, until Nirelle Atkinized our household)

No big deal. Buy two bunches. There are several types of Kale. Try them all to determine which you like best. Look for tender leaves. To prepare, cut away and discard the stalks.

Boil the leaves uncovered in lots of water (with a pinch of salt in it) for about 20 minutes. Generally cooking veggies uncovered serves to retain color. Rough chop and squeeze out most of the water. Just like cooking spinach. Fry chopped garlic in olive oil then if you like, add roasted pine nuts and bacon bits. When garlic is nicely browned add the boiled kale and toss for a while. To smooth things out add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt. Yum yum and very, that is, very healthy.
