Kale is in abundance right now. Give it a good rinse under cold water, then tear it into chunks. If the kale is overly gritty/dirty, soak the kale in cold water for a few minutes.
After you've torn it up, pat it dry with paper towels.
Chop some garlic and onions, any kind you have.
Add olive oil to the pan and saute the onions and garlic once these brown lightly add the kale. Immediately move it around with a tongs and watch as it shrinks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. It'll only take a couple of minutes and it's ready to eat!
Add chili peppers if that appeals to you. Some recipes add some chicken stock. I've seen capers added but that won't happen in this house.
You could add a slpash of red wine or balsamic vinegar.
I was thinking that almonds would also be a good addition.
Kale freezes very well so stock up.
Some recipes boil the kale first which doesn't make any sense to me.
