    1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes.

    2. Stir in the dried cranberries and continue boiling, uncovered, until the liquid has reduced by about half and the cranberries have softened, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with flaked almonds before serving.

    Well, I have to admit that it was very good. I have never had kale, or any other "southern" type of green. They used to sound kinda gross to me. But, my CSA box sent me a bunch of kale and I wanted to try it one time, to see if I truly did not like it or not. I wanted a simple recipe. This recipe fit the bill perfectly, and it tasted really good too. Way to go Surja! We will be making this again. Only changes will be halving the sugar in half and greatly increasing the dried cranberries. Very easy and quick to make. Make sure the Kale is dried off very well.  -  14 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. I cut the sugar as others suggested, and knew there was NO hope for hubby to like it if I added the cranberries and nuts, so left them out. Turned out GREAT anyway!  -  21 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow! I've never made Kale before and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty this recipe was. I searched the internet for a recipe for Kale and this one appealed to me the most. I did not have dried cranberries and almonds so I left them out and it tasted just fine without them. Thanks for a great recipe and I'll definitely make it again.  -  30 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
