Warm Curried Apples over Kale

It's that time of year and the very first signs of fall starting to appear. While in Austin, that may only mean 90 degree days instead of 100, we'll take it. The cooler weather has us spinning the spice rack looking for aromatic combinations that conjure up an autumnal attitude.

This 'recipe' is a simple one and yields big flavors in mere minutes. Not crazy about the idea of greens in the morning? This combo may change your mind.

  • 1/2 apple, diced
  • 1/2 TB coconut oil
  • 1-2 tsp curry powder*
  • 2 cups kale, cut into thin ribbons
  • 2 TB water
  • Himalayan Salt to taste
Heat 1/2 TB coconut oil over medium heat. Add diced apples, a touch of salt and curry powder. Stir until apples are heated through and curry is fragrant. Remove from pan and reserve. Add water to same pan, swirl around to collect the little bits of flavor leftover from the apples. When hot, add the kale, cover and steam for 2-3 minutes. If any water is leftover, drain and serve topped with the warm apples. 

Yummy with a sprinkling of hemp seeds, or if you eat dairy a dollop of high quality greek yogurt...a great place to experiment with proteins, especially if kicking off your day with this tasty little snack.

*Sensitive to nightshades? Check to be sure curry spice blends don't include chili powder and or sub out with a pinch of garam masala.
