Kale and onion saute with soy sauce

kale and onions with soy sauceWhile passing by the MSU Student Organic Farm stand on my way to seminar the other day, the kale jumped out at me. I'm not sure why - they had lots of delicious looking greens and other veggies - but I went with my craving. I wanted to take advantage of its freshness and cook it the day it was picked, but I was feeling somewhat lazy, so I decided to modify one of my favorite spinach recipes.

Kale and onion saute with soy sauce

1 tsp olive oil
1 large onion, sliced thinly
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp soy sauce (use wheat-free tamari for gluten-free)

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until they begin to brown (about 10 min). Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Stir in kale, cover, and let cook until thoroughly wilted (about 5 min). Stir in soy sauce. Serves 2.

So easy and so delicious. I love soy sauce and greens together, especially with the slightly bitter twang of kale. And it took virtually no time to make!
