2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 8 oz package tempeh, thinly sliced into strips
1 lemon, juiced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
4 drops of liquid stevia
2 cups blanched kale
dash of sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Blanch your kale if you haven’t already: Place de-stemmed and chopped kale in boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place the kale in a bowl of ice water. Drain well. Sometimes I actually squeeze the kale to wring out all the extra liquid.
Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tempeh strips and cook for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until both sides of the tempeh slices are brown.
While tempeh is browning, whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, ginger, cumin, Italian seasoning and stevia in a small bowl.
Once tempeh has browned, add blanched kale and the lemony garlic mixture. Stir to coat. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add salt and ground pepper to taste and serve.
