Stoplight Saute - Red, Yellow, & Greens
Sweet tender crisp vegetable flavors. Yum.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
3 tablespoons olive oil

1 bunch fresh kale, rinsed and coarsely chopped, stems separated from leaves
2 red bell peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
2-3 ears of cooked corn, kernels sliced off
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium-low heat and saute the garlic and kale stems, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until the garlic begins to turn light brown. Add the kale leaves and the red pepper, turn heat to medium low, cover and cook, stirring, for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the leaves and stems are tender.
