Author Notes: This recipe is so idiotically simple. It is really a testament to what really good pumpkin seed oil can do for a vegetable. If it is available in your area, try butternut squash seed oil from Stony Brook Wholehearted Foods (https://www.wholeheartedfoods.com). —Karen
tablespoons Pumpkin seed oil
tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Wash kale, remove the spines and discard. Tear leaves into 2-inch pieces. Put a steamer basket inside a large pot filled with water just below the steamer basket. Place kale inside. Cover and steam for about 15 minutes, until kale is bright green and tender.
- Remove kale from basket into a large salad bowl. Toss with pumpkin seed oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Top with pepitas. Serve immediately.
