what to do...

with leftover kale? i didn't use the whole bunch of kale i used in my soup the other night, so i went browsing through recipes on foodnetwork so i wouldn't have to waste it. i found emeril's lacinata kale with carmelized onions. it reminds me of a pasta dish my mom makes with spinach, so i altered it (like i do every recipe) and made it my own : )


you'll need:
olive oil
1 large sweet or white onion (long thin slices)
1/2 box whole wheat spaghetti
2 garlic cloves
as much kale as you have (middle stems removed, chopped finely)
chicken or veggie stock
salt
red pepper flakes
soft cheese of choice

1. heat 2 T. of olive oil over med. heat in saute pan, when hot add onions. cook until golden brown (meanwhile, cook spaghetti)
2. press garlic cloves and add to pan. cook 1-2 more minutes
3. add kale to pan, raise heat to med-high. add enough chicken stock to barely cover kale. add a dash of salt and red pepper. let simmer for about 5 min. or until kale absorbs most of the liquid.
4. after you've drained your pasta, add to the mix. incorporate everything and top with any cheese! (my mom uses chevre- i only had feta, but it was yummy!)

enjoy!

can't wait to try this & hopefully learn to buy groceries that I'm not familiar with.
