If you feel like you've had enough burgers and sausages on the BBQ and need a break from meat here is the perfect recipe that will help you detox. Kale is growing in popularity and is a well known superfood with detox properties. I eat meat but there are times when I like to take a break from it and eat vegetarian dishes like this.

Serves 2


2 x portions of boiled rice 
100g kale, washed
2 cloves of garlic (peeled and finely diced)
Juice of half a lemon
Vegetable oil and olive oil (to fry)
Salt & pepper (to season)


  1. Cut the thick part of the stem from the leaves.
  2. Roll the leaves into a bunch and cut into thin ribbons.
  3. Pour 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon of olive oil onto a frying pan.
  4. Turn the heat to medium and toss the garlic on the pan cooking until you start to get a nice aroma from the garlic (do not brown). 
  5. Season the garlic infused oil with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the chopped kale and reduce the heat to medium-low.
  7. Pour the lemon juice over the kale.
  8. Stir and fry until the kale is bright green all over. 
  9. At this point, take the kale off the hot pan as it will continue to cook. 
  10. Serve on top of a bowl of rice or as a side to a main dish.
