Serves 1, easily scalable


75 g kale, approximately 4-5 stalks, stems removed, ripped into bite-sized pieces
1/2 tbsp. neutral cooking oil
1 tbsp. homemade or store bought chili jam
1/8 cup water


crispy fried egg
squeeze of lemon
green onions
fried garlic
sesame seeds
cooked grain of choice


Rinse and spin kale.

Heat oil in a wok at medium-high heat and add chili jam. With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, spread chili jam around until heated through - it should just start to bubble.

Toss in kale and sauté to combine. Once the leaves are coated, add water and turn down the heat to medium-low. Cook for another 2-4 minutes, until desired tenderness.
