Traditional collards can take an hour or more to cook; hearty lacinato kale takes just 3 minutes. Make sure to remove the middle stems from the kale greens to avoid bitterness and thick stems to chew on. For some punch, add a dash of hot sauce or red wine vinegar. Serve with our Black-Eyed Pea Cakes with Corn Salsa for a perfect Southern vegetarian meal. As a fast and healthy option, make this side for your meatless Monday meal.  

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large skillet over high. Add onion; cook 2 minutes or until slightly charred. Add tomatoes to pan; cook 2 minutes. Add kale; cook 3 minutes. Stir in pepper and salt.

Hubby doesn't care for kale so I used spinach.  Really good side and super easy.  I squeezed a little lemon over the top.  Had with CL's Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken (Nov 2016) for a very good meal.  Will make again.
