10 Ways to Cook Kale

Sautéed Tuscan Kale

Sautéing is an excellent way to prepare kale: It wilts like spinach but doesn't lose nearly as much volume, so a little bit of it will go a long way. Tuscan kale, or dinosaur kale, is a little bit thicker and tougher than standard kale, so it holds up especially well in the sauté pan. In this recipe, it's cooked with cannellini beans and plenty of garlic.
