Stir-fried Kale with Slivered Carrots

3/4 lb. fresh kale
Boiling water
2 tsp. canola oil
2 carrots, peeled and cut julienne (see note)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pinch cayenne pepper, if desired

Rinse kale and remove stems, including large stem running through center of each leaf. Place a few leaves on top of each other and cut into thin strips. Repeat until all kale is cut. Add kale to pot of boiling water and boil uncovered 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots and sauté 2 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 more minute. Add coriander, salt and pepper, to taste, and cayenne, if using. Cook 15 seconds. Add kale and cook 1-2 minutes.

Note: Julienne means to cut into very thin, matchstick strips.
