  • Combine the cashews and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl; toss to coat the cashews in the oil. Spread onto a baking sheet.

  • Toast the cashews in the preheated oven until golden brown and fragrant, shaking the baking sheet occasionally, 5 to 10 minutes. Watch carefully so they don't burn. Set aside.

  • Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Cook and stir the onion in the hot oil until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Stir the garlic into the onion, and cook for 1 minute more before stirring the kale into the onion and garlic mixture. Place a cover on the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale softens, about 7 minutes. Stir the spinach into the mixture, season with the sea salt and white pepper, and continue cooking until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Toss the cashews with the mixture to serve.

This is delicious. I used all kale (approx. 1 lb.) butter instead of olive oil and almonds instead of cashews. So so good. Read More

Good but missing something. Next time I may try throwing something else in it too like a splash of white wine or cranberries or parmesian cheese. Read More

FYI: garlic should be minced. I failed to write that in the directions. Read More

I made this last night....it was terrific! I used pecans toasted because that's what I had so I can only imagine how good it would be with cashews. Read More

I had been looking for a good Kale recipe because it is so nutritious. The first time I prepared it I used nuts but did not the second time and didn't miss them at all and also cut back 1 tablespoon olive oil by not using nuts. Just trying to cut calories! One problem however with the recipe it doesn't give instructions on if the garlic is to be used whole or cut up. the second time I prepared this I sliced the garlic to bring out the flavor and it made a positive difference. I also cut up the Kale into bite size pieces so it would be easier to eat. Great taste! Read More

1st time I have cooked kale! My grandma who said she hated kale & is extremely finicky about food ate her whole plateful & said she liked it. (She really won't eat it if she doesn't!) My grandpa liked it so much he took my bowl when I had my backed turned to take the cornbread of the oven!:) No leftovers! Changes: Unless you buy raw cashews they are roasted. I had some & used them. I bet this would be even better with freshly roasted cashews. Wow. I I had used a little of the bunch of kale for another recipe. I tried to cut a bit from the center places that looked tougher. I used a bag of baby spinach minus a little since that is what I had. I used a medium sized shallot since that is what I had (& I'm not as crazy about onions) I used 3 garlic cloves because I had fewer greens & I tend to find garlic overpowering. This was just right for me though most people I know would probably be happy with the whole amount. I will probably try 4 if I have the proper amounts. Also unfortunately I only had black pepper instead of white. It was still wonderful. I made this with "Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread" & ham for an easy quick dinner. Read More

Wow! I have never like vegetables very much. But when I heard how nutrient dense kale was I went searching for how to cook it. I tried this recipe only changing almonds for cashews and I really liked it! Read More

It is excellent by itself but on different occasions I have mixed in seasoned chicken and/or also added garlic shrimp to this dish with wonderful results. Read More
