A little bit of fat helps your body absorb the goodness from greens, and the richness of the Cashew Cream takes the flavor of simple steamed vegetables up a notch. This is more of a blueprint than a recipe; instead of kale, try broccoli, cauliflower, or any cruciferous vegetables you have on hand.


  • 1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1


Add the kale, lemon juice, and garlic to a medium skillet set over medium heat and season with salt and pepper. Add the water. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes, then start checking for desired doneness. When the kale is tender enough for your liking, stir in the cashew cream until thoroughly coated. Serve.
