Red onion and tangy cranberries pair beautifully with the slight bitterness of sautéed kale. Goes especially well with roast pork.

Ingredients

Uncooked kale

2½ pound(s), washed, center stems removed, leaves coarsely torn

Olive oil

1 Tbsp, extra-virgin

Uncooked red onion(s)

2 cup(s), chopped, thinly sliced

Kosher salt

½ tsp

Dried cranberries

½ cup(s), chopped

Apple cider vinegar

1½ tsp

Black pepper

¼ pinch

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat; add kale and using a pair of tongs, push kale down so it fits in pot all at once. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 7 to 8 minutes; drain and set aside.
  2. In same pot, heat oil over medium-low heat. Sweat onion, stirring frequently, until very soft, about 30 minutes. Add kale, cranberries, salt and pepper; stir well and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar and serve. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

Finish with fresh lemon zest, if desired.
