Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 3 lb. curly kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped (about 12 cups)
  • 3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds

Preparation

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.
