Sauteed Squid and Kale

Sauteed Squid and Kale

Squid in this dish is cooked in garlic-and-shallot flavored olive oil. The addition of slightly concentrated Kayanoya Vegetable Stock elevates great umami in the dish. You can replace kale with other greens such as spinach, collard greens and Swiss chards.
