Plain and Simple Kale
To remove the stem and center vein, pull them off with your hands or cut them with a knife. The center vein isn't as tough as the stem; if the vein's chewiness bothers you, get rid of it. Fold the leaf in half and pull it away from the vein. Don't worry if you tear up the leaf.
