How  do you massage  kale?

Simply take the leaves once they’ve been chopped or sliced and use your hands to rub the kale (as if you’re massaging it) until it begins to soften. You can use a little olive  oil or coconut oil if you like. This process basically makes the kale easier to eat as it breaks down the toughness of the leaf and also removes some of the bitterness.
