Sauteed Kale with Caramelized Onions

I am not overly fond of kale, but this is one of the recipes I do enjoy. 

Kale Saute with Caramelized Onions

1 small (or one half large) onion, peeled and sliced.
1 - 2 tablespoons oil, maybe be olive oil or sunflower oil
1 clove garlic, diced
1 large bunch cleaned organic baby kale
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, as garnish (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

In a 4 quart or larger pot, caramelize the onion over medium high heat in the oil.  When the onions are nicely browned, add the garlic and stir until just softened.

Add kale, and stir fry, lifting the wilted kale from the bottom of the pan until kale is mainly all wilted.  Then, add about 1/4 cup water and continue stirring until the water is evaporated.  Add another 1/4 cup and when that has evaporated, the kale is ready to serve.  Sprinkle the top with sesame seed as a garnish, if desired.

  1. Looks good. I've got kale in the fridge so I'll give this a go tonight. I steamed kale the other night and I really enjoy the cooked kale better than the raw. Apparently it's better to eat cooked kale than raw anyway.
