Kale is loaded with vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, B6 potassium and much more. It is also very inexpensive. Here is a recipe I made that was absolutely delicious.

(I used balsamic instead of red wine vinegar.)


Sauteed Kale

1 lb kale, tough stems and center ribs discarded and leaves cut into 1-inch-wide strips (8 cups)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small red onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
1 garlic clove, minced
Pinch of dried hot red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cook kale in a 6-quart pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 10 minutes, then drain in a colander.

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté, stirring, until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to moderate, then add kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar and salt.

I've been trying to get into Kale but never had something that seemed to be a good bet to me recipe-wise. This looks pretty easy and tasty though! Thanks for posting it :D

So do I. And it goes into stir-fries as well, and it pasta dishes and with perogies.

I've also made a recipe for raw kale salad that's pretty good.
