Korean Banchan style Kale with soy and sesame oil

I love Korean food, my favorite part is not the meat, but the Banchan - side dishes. One of my favorite has always been the simple spinach or watercress. I ran into some baby Kale at Costco for all places last week and I am getting pretty tired of salad, so here is a great alternative in the winter:

Korean Banchan style Kale with soy and sesame oil

4-5 cups pre-washed baby kale. Rinsed and drained
3-4 clove garlic
1-2 tbsp vegetable oil for frying
2 tbsp shoyu/soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
toasted sesame for garnish
Smashed the garlic with the back of the knife
 Finely chopped the garlic
 Preheat a large frying pan or wok with a couple table of oil
Add the garlic, saute over med low heat till fragrant.
 Add kale about a cup at a time, you will have to turn it it and
Let it cook down for each additional
 When the last batch of the kale start to wilt, add shoyu and sesame oil.
 Plate the vegetable and drizzle with a dash of additional sesame oil and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Serve 2 -3 as side
