Kale & Apple Sauté

Ingredients

  •  1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 medium apples, cored and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch kale, well rinsed

 

Directions

Heat oil in a large sauté pan with a lid over medium heat.

Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally until tender, about 4 minutes.

Add apples, vinegar and salt and pepper

Cover and cook until apples are just tender, 3 to 4 minutes more.

 

Meanwhile, remove and discard tough stems from kale.

Gather a few leaves at a time, roll together like a cigar and slice into thin ribbons.

Add kale to pan, stir and cook, covered, until kale is tender, about 3 minutes longer.

Serve with your favorite Meat or Seafood!!! Halibut is my choice when it is in season!
