Kale and Caramelized Onions

I love kale chips.  Have you tried them yet?  Go here to see how I make them.  But cooking kale for a meal is a different story.  It’s not my first choice of vegetable and I am guessing it isn’t yours either.  But it should be!  😉

Blog-Kale1It is not hard to cook kale and it tastes pretty good.  Caramelized onions add some yummy flavor too.    You need to use one whole head of kale.  I know that sounds crazy, but once it starts cooking it really shrinks down.  When you first start putting the kale in your pan you will wonder how it will ever fit.  Next thing you know, your pan will look empty.    That’s before you start eating it.  So yeah, use a whole head.


This cooks fast towards the end, and it cools off quickly so you will want all your other food prepared so you are ready to eat this right away.
