Sweet and Savory Kale

First things first, I have to apologize for the tupperware pictures in this post! I had no plans to share this recipe with you but I ended up loving it so much that I had to share. I always feel like I am such a fraud as a nutritionist when I say this, but I’m not the biggest fan of veggies. I went through a phase where I convinced myself I liked kale chips only to discover that I was actually choking them down. Now I stick to the veggies that I love and am always exploring new ways to make them more appealing. This dish was a win for me and while I still won’t say kale is my favorite (anyone else think it’s way too chewy?), I will say I’m growing to like it more and more. All you green veggie haters enjoy!


  • 2 bunches fresh kale (or one large bag fresh chopped kale)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbs. agave nectar


  1. Begin by chopping your kale into small pieces and dicing your peppers.
  2. In a skillet over low heat warm your coconut oil and add in the bell peppers. Saute the peppers until tender.
  3. Next add in your kale and 2 tbs. of coconut aminos, cover and let simmer over low heat to wilt.
  4. Once your kale is wilted add in the remaining coconut aminos and agave and let cook over low heat 2-3 minutes longer.

    I love everything Sweet and Savory!!
    It’s really weird, but I never found Kale around here. We do have different kinds of red kale or china kale, but I never saw this curly green kale, and I am so curious about it!
    I love my veggies roasted in coconut milk. Gives them a great taste and makes them creamy!

      Very true! I love coconut aminos. It’s one of my favorite ways to season up my food.

    Not going to lie – the idea of sweet kale skeeves me out a little, especially because kale is right up there on my list of things I won’t eat. But I’m a huge fan of the sweet and savoury combo, and I love that you’re finding ways to make veggies work for you instead of choking them down.

      Hahaha I don’t blame you. I am not the world’s biggest kale fan either but I promise this is the best way I’ve made it so far!
