What a tasty way to eat your greens! Baby kale is sautéed with caramelized onions, toasted pine nuts and golden raisins for a quick, healthy side dish. I often eat this over rice for a main meal. Baby spinach is an easy substitute.

I changed a few things in this recipe, so some might not consider this having made the actual recipe, but here it goes-- Substitutions, using what I had at home: walnuts for pine nuts; dried cherries for raisins; and I threw in some asparagus for the extra veggie and fiber. The combination of ingredients was not what I'd put together, but the flavors worked really well. I had it with brown rice and baked salmon. :) Read More

A yummy recipe. I substituted dried apricots diced for the raisins and added 1/3 cup diced shitake mushrooms. Even better! Read More

This was very good and easy to make. You can put various different herbs in this side dish and season according to your taste. It is a keeper. Read More

I thought it was pretty good but the kale (it only came in an 11oz box) was bitter so I had to change the recipe a bit and everyone loved it. First, I had to SLOWLY caramelize the onions taking over 15 minutes, not 5 minutes. Second, I needed more golden raisins (1/3 1/2 cup loosely packed)to offset the bitterness of the kale and I soaked them in 2 tbsp of hot water first. I also added more pine nuts (1/3 cup). Read More

I omitted the golden raisins because I've never liked them but otherwise followed the recipe and it was great! Both my husband and I loved it! Read More

Love the sweetness of the raisins with the bitterness of the kale and the extra little crunch and nutty flavor from the pine nuts... yum! Will definitely make again! Read More
