We love Kale at our house. This is a good way to fix it. So many people are unfamiliar and therefore afraid to try it. GO FOR IT! Great source of vitimins and tastes good too.

I had some leftover kale from a soup I made and was looking for a recipe to use it up. I'm glad I tried this one -- it is SO good. I carmelized the onions for about 10 minutes, added the garlic and cooked for another 2 minutes, and then added the kale (stems removed). I also added a little water to the pan which helped the kale wilt. I used white balsamic vinegar as the finishing touch. Your recipe is quick, easy, healthy, and most of all -- really delicious. We loved it and will be making it again.

Excellent! Since I love the taste of carmelized onions, I decided to use one whole one and it added great flavor. I also felt that that the recipe benefited from the addition of salt (just a pinch or three) and a few splashes of Mrs. Dash seasoning. But what really made the dish was the addition of balsamic vinegar at the end--it really enhances the taste of the kale and is not to be missed. If you're trying to add more greens to your diet or just looking for a quick and tasty side dish, try this recipe!

Yum. Def a keeper. The balsamic vinegar really made the dish. I added in a little black pepper to the dish too.

I add a tiny bit of water, a pinch of salt or dash of white wine vinegar instead of balsamic vinegar and it always turns out wonderfully! Great vegan side!

First time I ever made Kale and enjoyed having it this way. Next time I will remove the stems though.

A nice, quick recipe. For meat-eaters, I'd add a tasty meat such as bacon or sausage to give it a little more flavor. And yes, don't forget to remove the stems.

This was quite good,though I forgot to add balsamic vinegar & will make sure I do next time. I'd prefer removing stems also, a bit tough to chew!

Good but not great. Seemed a bit bland but I never eat kale so maybe I'm missing something. I KEPT the stems as I didn't want to waste them. I cut them in half lengthwise then chopped then into maybe thumb sized pieces. I sauteed them a bit before adding the onion. I was using minced garlic from a jar so I added that right before the kale. I should have added some water or something to help the kale cook down. It seemed still a bit raw but still edible. I have a spray bottle of balsamic vinegar. It really does help, maybe next time I'll add more.

Kale is not something I cook very often but this recipe caught my eye, and I'm glad it did. Loved the balsamic vinegar finish.
