Cumin Scented Kale

This is the perfect side dish for taco night, to stuff in a burrito, or have alongside grilled fish or local grassfed meat! For this side dish the kale is cooked on high, then seasoned with toasted cumin seeds and lime juice. If you’re looking for something “different” this is it.

  • 1 head of kale
  • ½ tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lime
  • salt to taste


  • Prep the kale. Wash kale, remove the stems, and chop into bite size pieces.
  • Place the cumin seeds in a dry skillet and toast over medium heat for a minute or two until they become fragrant. Remove the seeds from the pan and add the oil. When the oil is shimmery add the kale and cook over medium high heat until wilted, but still bright green. Add the cumin seeds, lime juice, and a big pinch of kosher salt. Taste and adjust lime or salt if necessary.
