What to do with my greens? That is my weekly question and I usually just braise them in olive oil with caramelized onions or garlic, like this. The onions certainly help to reduce the bitterness but this time I added extra sweetness to the mix in the way of dried cranberries. Turned out to be a fine combination.
Kale, Caramelized Onions and Cranberries
1 medium bunch of kale, trimmed of stems, rinsed and chopped into ribbons (easier for kids to eat)
1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
2-3 tablespoons dried cranberries
1. Saute onion sprinkled with salt, over low heat until soft and browned.
2. Add kale, cranberries and 1/2 cup of water. Turn to coat and cover. Simmer over low heat until kale is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Add more water if necessary.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 3-4 servings.
