Zero Waste Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Kale Stems

Sweet & Spicy Kale Stems (and leaves too!)

1 bunch of kale (stems and all! We used curly kale, but any variety works well)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
½ tsp soy sauce/tamari
½ tsp sriracha
1 pinch chili flakes
1 pinch sea salt

Remove kale leaves from stems and tear into small pieces, adding to mixing bowl. Chop the stems into pieces about one inch in length and add to separate bowl.

Heat olive oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the kale stems and sauté for about 5 minutes, until the kale stems have softened but still have a little bit of crunch. Add in the kale leaves and sauté for about 2 more minutes, until leaves are tender.

Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients, tossing well until the kale is coated with the mixture.
