Kale, Broccoli, and Brussel Sprouts

If you are like me, you are looking for ways to include more kale in your diet. Here is a recipe I like that comes from Yumly.

Easy Stir-Fried Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups broccoli, stems removed and florets cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 cups kale, leaves removed and cut into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallions, white and light green parts
  • 1 fresh Thais bird chili pepper, minced (optional, see note above)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Procedures
  1. Combine the broth, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar in a small bowl and set aside (for a thicker sauce, see note above).

  2. Heat oil in a12-inch skillet or wok until lightly smoking. Immediately add the broccoli and cook until they become more vibrant in color and are just cooked, but still crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Return pan to heat and heat until smoking. Add brussels sprouts leaves and kale and cook until just cooked through and lightly charred in spots, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl with broccoli.

  3. Return pan to heat and add the garlic, ginger, scallion, and chili (if using). Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Return vegetables to the pan and add the sauce mixture. Toss to coat vegetables. Season to taste with salt if necessary. Stir in half the cilantro, transfer to a serving bowl, top with remaining cilantro, and serve immediately.
