Kale, Braised w/Caramelized Onions (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Vegetarian Times
Serves: 6

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 pounds curly kale (about 12 cups), coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup almonds

Heat oil in large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft and beginning to brown. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute, or until fragrant.

Stir in kale and 2 cups of water. Cover, and cook 30 minutes, or until kale is tender. Season with salt and pepper. If making ahead, cool, and store in airtight container. Just before serving, reheat kale mixture, then drizzle with vinegar, and sprinkle with almonds.

Poster's Notes:
I really think any mix of sturdy greens would be fine, it doesn't have to be kale.

I believe I'll be adding some sugar to the onions next time and also to the kale for the cooking time as it's more acidic than I'd personally like.
