Sautéed black kale bruschetta recipe with olive oil and red chili. Make the Tuscan bruschetta with kale when you have a delicious loaf of crusty Italian bread.
In Tuscany, they make kale bruschetta when black kale is in season, mostly on the cold months of the year.
The bruschetta with kale is also a traditional Tuscan Christmas dish, probably because it is such an easy recipe: mamme and nonne need time to make all the other rich and nutritious dishes they’ll bring to the hungry table.
kale bruschetta recipe
- 1 bunch of black kale
- 1 red pepper
- 1 garlic clove
- extra-virgin olive oil
- 6-7 slices of Italian sourdough bread
Clean kale from stems.
Boil it for 20 minutes in salted water.
Drain well and cut it in strips.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Crush the garlic clove and brown it, with red pepper, until golden.

Meanwhile heat a grilling pan or the oven and toast the bread slices.
Serve kale over bread bruschetta, hot and spicy, with a drizzle of olive oil.
