4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed

  • ¼ head cabbage, cut into strips

  • 1 bunch kale, cut into strips

  • 2 medium sweet onions (such as Vidalia®), cut into strips

  • ¼ cup chicken bone broth

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes


  1. Heat olive oil in a deep frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 1 minute. Remove to a plate; chop and set aside.

  2. Place cabbage into the pan and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes; add kale and onions. Stir-fry until kale is bright green and tender, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cover and let steam, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add chopped garlic, and serve.

Cook's Notes:

Red Russian or lacinato (Tuscan, dinosaur) kale is less bitter. Avoid thicker stems for a milder, and more tender, dish.

Chopped browned garlic is a strong flavor and some may prefer to omit this.
