Stir Fried Baby Buttonhole Kale with Chunky Croutons

An ideal colourful salad dish to go with your barbecue. Actually, the croutons are very moreish in themselves!

Recipe By: Green Eyed Girl (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/326)
Serves 4 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Baby buttonhole kale bulb 1/2
Bread loaf (small) 1/2 (200g)
Garlic 1 clove
Olive oil 1 tbsp
Salt & pepper a little
Spring onion greens 2

Method

1
This is the baby buttonhole kale, it's so pretty and colourful! I bought it in Waitrose. Take off the outer leaves and use the smaller inner ones. Chop the garlic.
2
Make the croutons: use your preferred loaf (I used a round wheat, spelt & rye loaf from Morrisons) and pull apart into large pieces.
3
Put in a bowl with the olive oil, salt & pepper and mix to combine. Put onto an oven tray and in a preheated oven 180C for 10 minutes.
4
In the meantime, fry the garlic in some oil in a frying pan on low heat. Add the kale and stir fry for 5 minutes. Season lightly with salt.
5
Transfer to a serving dish and top with the croutons. Garnish with chopped spring onion greens.

Tips & Note

It's actually better to use bread that's not so fresh to make the croutons, it's a good way of using it up. Even though you are using the inner leaves, the kale needs good cooking time otherwise it will remain hard.
