Curly Kale with Caramelized Onions

In the South, no Thanksgiving would be complete without a mess o’ greens. This is an ideal make-ahead dish because the greens always taste better a day or two after they’ve been cooked.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced (about 1 ½ cups)
Ingredient Line: 
3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 Tbs.)
Ingredient Line: 
3 lb. curly kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped (about 12 cups)
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup chopped almonds

Instructions: 

  1. Heat oil in large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft and beginning to brown. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  2. Stir in kale and 2 cups water. Cover, and cook 30 minutes, or until kale is tender. Season with salt and pepper. If making ahead, cool, and store in airtight container. Just before serving, reheat kale mixture, then drizzle with vinegar, and sprinkle with almonds.

Great

Very nice tasting.

I've been making this every Thanksgiving for the past 5 years! Everyone in my family looks forward to it now, which means a lot since they are southern :)
