Bring a pot of salted water to boil.
Blanch kale in boiling water for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
Chop blanched kale into 1 inch strips. Wrap cut kale in a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible over the sink. Set drained kale aside.
In a saucepan over medium heat, add ½ cup Forager Project Half & Half and 2 teaspoons of flour, whisk until combined and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 2-3 minute until thickened. Toss in minced garlic, red pepper flakes (if using), chopped kale, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes until half and half is thick and coats the kale.
Transfer creamed kale to plates and finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
