Meatless Friday : Kale Pasta & Rolled Grilled Cheese


I like a simple meal. And once or twice a week I like to serve meatless meals to my family. Kale.. there are a lot of recipes and smoothies that you can incorporate this cruciferous greens. It is one of the most healthiest vegetable. It is an anti-oxidant , anti-inflammatory , excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K -- and sulphur-containing phytonutrients. Kale is also rich in the eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds.

If I have not convince you yet about including Kale in your meals..

You'll need :

a bunch of Kale

 Meanwhile , cook you pasta according to package instructions.



Heat a large pot. Melt the butter and add in the olive oil. Saute the minced garlic. Be careful not to burn it. 


Add the kale leaves , and cook it for about 5 minutes. Once it turned into dark , deep green..it should be done. Turn your stove off.
