Crostini with Kale and Parmesan

  • Servings: 8
  • Yield:
Crostini with Kale and Parmesan

Source: Everyday Food, December 2009


  • 1 baguette, sliced 1/2 inch thick on the diagonal
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds kale, preferably Tuscan, stems removed, leaves sliced into 1/4-inch-thick strips
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small wedge Parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange bread slices on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until light golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil and garlic over medium-high until garlic is fragrant. Add kale and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add 1 cup water; cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated, 12 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid is evaporated, 3 to 5 minutes. Toss with lemon juice.

  3. Top crostini with kale. With a vegetable peeler, shave Parmesan onto top.

    This was a different way for us to use the kale that came in our CSA box. Yummy, but not sure I'd make it again.
