Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch black kale, trimmed and chopped
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz Riopelle, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices multigrain bread

Method

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and kale and cook until wilted, tender and any liquid in pan evaporates - about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool. (Pat dry if necessary.)
  2. Make sandwiches by topping 4 pieces of bread with kale. Top with slices of cheese in a single layer. Top with remaining bread.
  3. Grill sandwiches in a panini maker until cheese melts or heat a heavy skillet on medium high, brush with butter or olive oil and cook sandwiches, pressing firmly, a few minutes on each side until cheese starts to melt and sandwich is browned.
