5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 bunch kale (3 green containers, packed), chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 pound turkey sausage, casings removed (2 red containers)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (1 blue container)
  • 1 wedge of lemon
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add your turkey sausage (you shouldn’t need to add any oil) and season with salt and pepper
  2. Break up your sausage with a wooden spoon and let it sit in the pan (leave it alone!) so that it will brown. Every so often, stir it around and break up the sausage more, but then let it sit again so it can brown. If you are constantly stirring it and moving it around, it won’t brown
  3. When your sausage is browned and cooked through, remove it to a plate
  4. Add the 2 teaspoons of olive oil into your pan along with the red pepper flakes and garlic
  5. Stir this around and let it cook for about 20-30 seconds, until the garlic is fragrant
  6. Add your kale, stir to combine, and saute until kale has wilted some and tenderized a bit
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  8. Add your sausage back into the kale, and top with your Parmesan cheese. Squeeze a wedge of lemon juice over top, stir to combine, and serve!
