2 lbs / 900 gr kale

4 tablespoons butter, divided

1 ½ tablespoons arrowroot flour (or regular white flour)

1 cup / 250 ml stock (I used beef stock)

¾ cup grated Swiss cheese

2 tablespoons gluten-free breadcrumbs (or regular breadcrumbs)

1 teaspoon fine grain salt

⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Steam and wash the kale.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add kale, cover, and cook for 4 minutes, until tender.
  • Transfer to a colander, immediately fill the pot with cold water, transfer the kale back to the pot of cold water to stop the cooking. Drain again.
  • Squeeze a small amount of kale in your hands to extract as much water as possible. Transfer to a chopping board and roughly chop it.
  • Wipeout the pot and melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
  • Stir in chopped kale and cook for two minutes or until all of the moisture has boiled off and the kale starts to stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Lower the heat and sprinkle with flour. Stir for 2 minutes to cook the flour (the flour will stick to the pot, that’s okay!)
  • Add the stock, ¼ cup at a time, stirring between each addition.
  • Once all the liquid is added, simmer for 1 further minute. Finally stir in one tablespoons of butter.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in ½ cup of the cheese into the kale
  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and place a rack in the middle.
  • Lightly grease a baking dish and pour the kale into it.
  • In a small bowl mix remaining ¼ cup of cheese with breadcrumbs and sprinkle on the kale.
  • Melt remaining tablespoon of butter and pour it over the top.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden on top.
  • Serve warm!
