Lacinato Kale:


1 bunch lacinato kale, center ribs removed

2 cloves garlic, slivered

1 white onion

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Cut onion in half and slice from top to bottom, creating julienne strips. Place in sauté pan with olive oil and salt. Cook on very low heat covered until onions are very soft and golden. Stir in garlic and cook for 5 minutes more. Add kale and cook covered on very low heat until wilted and soft. Adjust seasoning as needed.
