Sautéed Kale with Hazelnut Gremolata

This dish is as simple as it can be.

It's kale simply sautéed in oil with garlic and pepper flakes, then finished with a squeeze of lemon. We served it with our hazelnut gremolata.

Why is this a separate post? Well, I just wanted to point out that natural light is the best! Woohoo. Of course, the day after this was back to doom and gloom. But, I'll take what I can get.

  1. Your hazelnut gremolata is really versatile. I miss natural light too...can't wait for summer!

  2. LOL yes, natural light is always better, but when you can't get it then you used a wireless flash to emulate it :-p

    Yummy dish!

  3. Ah, winter :) I was waiting for what you'd use the gremolata on-- this looks so tasty and healthy too! :)

  4. I love how you used the gremolata in this dish - yum!

  5. This looks delicious. You're right - natural light is best. Unfortunately I think we're in the same boat right now... spring will come eventually, right?

  6. You really can't beat simply sauteed greens -- for flavor and nutrition.

    Love kale... and the gremolata... and am yearning for some good natural light for my own photos! Thank goodness the dreariness of winter is almost over!!

  7. I love kale but alas, Lon does not...=(

  8. haha! Bless natural light!
    The hazelnut gremolata looks/sounds delicious. Made a pistachio gremolata with fish recently and i loved it. I will try your version.

  9. Hazelnut gremolata, I am in love. And this sauteed kale not only sounds good for you but good for your palette.

    Good thing we're getting at least SOME light now!

    Hehe, you guys and your fancy photography equipment! =D

    Oh no! Maybe you can train him to like them. =) I didn't use to like them that much... but they slowly grew on me. They're great!

    Zen Chef:
    Ah, fish! Yes, yes. Will have to do a nut gremolata on fish sometime.

    Ooh, wonder what your Valentine's Day dinner is going to be.

  13. Great photograph! I love the idea of gremolata on kale.

  14. I was about to say.. that's an amazing photo. Natural light really brings out those fine details.

  15. Maggie:
    Thanks! We did breadcrumbs on kale before, so I thought this would be a natural extension of that.

    Thanks! Kale is so frilly.
