Delicious kale and bacon


1-2 heads of kale washed and trimmed (remove the center stem)

1 onion chopped

1/2-1 pack of bacon

3-4 cloves chopped garlic

1/4-3/4 C homemade broth (or boxed, I use Pacifico brand)

Seasoning (I use Charleston 10 spice)


I massage my kale. I put it in a big bowl ad squeeze it until it is dark green. Not for too long, maybe a minute or 2. Maybe 3. Depends how much kale I’m working with. Read about massaging kale here

Heat the pan (I use a wok pan)

add chopped bacon and cook until barely brown

add onion

season bacon and onion liberally

cook until onion is soft, about 8 minutes

add garlic about half way through cooking the onions

add kale and stir until all the kale leaves are coated in fat

add broth and stir

cover the pot and let the kale wilt, stirring occasionally (about 5-7 minutes)
