Sweet and spicy Italian-style kale

Submitted by: METODAY23

Introduction

Really delicious kale side dish. Created when I needed to do something with fresh purple kale from my CSA. Really delicious kale side dish. Created when I needed to do something with fresh purple kale from my CSA.

Ingredients

    -One bunch kale leaves, and stems if you like them (I used the kind with purple stems), chopped/cut
    -Several cloves garlic, pressed
    -Olive oil
    -Small tomato, chopped
    -White wine, a cup or so
    -Salt and red pepper flakes to taste

Directions

Heat a pan with olive oil. Add the pressed or chopped garlic. Before the garlic burns, add the kale leaves, chopped or cut coarsely. Give it a few minutes to cook down, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and red pepper flakes and add the chopped tomato. If you want it really spicy, add a dried hot pepper or two. Finally, add the white wine, and allow to cook for about 7 minutes, until the kale is cooked to your liking. I like it so that it's pretty soft but there's still some color to the leaves and crunch to the stems.

The tomato and wine makes a great sauce for this dish. Make sure you have great, fresh kale to avoid bitterness. This dish is really delicious!

Serves 2-3.
