Author Notes: I love kale, but I get bored with the same old thing: sauteed kale, kale chips, kale in smoothies. This recipe is a spin on sauteed kale that will for sure challenge your taste buds!Cheryl Paswater

Serves: 2-4 people


  • 1 bunch Kale
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Onion
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic

In This Recipe


  1. Wash and dry your kale. Cut out the stems and cut the kale into approximately 2 inch pieces.
  2. In a skillet heat the olive oil and add the onions. Cook until they start to get translucent on medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minutes and then lower the heat to medium/low.
  4. Next, add the kale and keep tossing it in the skillet. Once the kale starts to get a rich green color you'll add salt and pepper and then you'll start adding some water (2-3 tablespoons at a time) and cover the skillet with a lid to allow the kale to steam a bit. Cook like this for another 2-3 minutes
  5. Once the kale is tender and cooked through you'll add a splash of white wine vinegar and the cinnamon. Toss for another 1-2 minutes and serve!
