    3 slice(s) uncooked reduced-fat bacon
    3 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1 cup(s) (chopped) uncooked onion(s), diced
    1 pound(s) uncooked kale, stemmed, roughly chopped
    1 cup(s) canned chicken broth, or beef broth
    15 oz canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    1 tsp sugar, in the raw


Set a large, heavy pot or skillet over medium heat; add bacon and cook to desired crispness. Remove bacon from pot and set aside; leave bacon drippings in pot.
Add garlic and red pepper flakes to bacon drippings; cook, stirring, until garlic becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add kale; cook, stirring occasionally, until it starts to wilt, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add broth; cover and simmer over low heat until kale is just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add beans; simmer, uncovered, until liquid is almost evaporated, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in salt, vinegar and sugar; sprinkle with crumbled bacon and serve immediately. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.
