Kale with Lemon & Hemp Seeds

Sauteed Kale with Lemon & Hemp Seeds is so easy to make and it’s so delicious!!

Sauteed Kale is so good, and when you add in some lemon and hemp seeds it brings it to another level. If you love Kale, you need to try this! This kale recipe with lemon & hemp seeds would be a great healthy addition to any meal. Kale is actually one of my favorite vegetables. Not just to eat but also to grow. I love using kale in soups, smoothies, and also for making kale chips. Also for an easy healthy side dish. What’s not to love?

I had some kale to use up today because I never got to making kale chips. That’s ok because I really enjoyed this dish! And it’s so simple to make. You’ll see with the ingredients. The list is short, but I promise this dish is worth making!

Are you curious about hemp seeds? Me too! I’ve heard good things about them, so when I saw them at Target I had to get them. Guess what…they are so good! They have a nutty flavor to them, and I really enjoyed them. Especially in this kale dish. I was actually pleasantly surprised!

I’m excited because hemp seeds are also good for you. They are actually considered complete plant protein. I will definitely be using them in future dishes! I really think this combo works. The lemon flavor pairs nicely with the nuttiness of the hemp seeds. It’s a match made in heaven. When you have a vegetarian in the house, you need to get creative and find alternative protein sources. I do think hemp seeds are worth trying.


It’s time to get your ingredients ready…

-Wash and dry your kale and then chop your kale into small pieces. Next, you’ll want to mince your garlic and have your hemp seeds and your lemon and zester ready. Now it’s time to cook!!

Grab a saute pan, add some olive oil to the pan, and set at med to low heat. Next, add your minced garlic and saute. Now add your kale, season with salt and pepper, and saute. Your kale will cook quickly. Once you notice your kale starting to wilt, add in your lemon zest and hemp seeds (amount to your liking) and continue to saute on low. Give it a taste, and make sure it’s seasoned enough. And that’s it! After 5-10 mins of cooking, your healthy kale side dish is ready!
