This spicy garlic kale is such a quick and easy side dish to make that is LOADED with nutrition. Tuscan kale is a resilient, hearty plant that extraordinarily nutritious: 1 cup of Tuscan kale provides more than 100% of the daily value of vitamins K and A and 88% of the daily value for vitamin C. It is also a rich source of organosulfur compounds that have been linked to cancer prevention. This dish pairs well with just about ANYTHING to make it a meal but is also delicious on its own as a snack!
