"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."
"Good! Between carmelized onion and deglazing with balsamic vinegar, this dish was slightly sweet. I used a bag of organic chopped kale from Trader Joes which made for an easy side. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"This is a decent kale recipe, although it's a little bland. That's easily fixable though."
"We loved it! So quick and simple. The balsamic vinegar really is a must. Made for Diabetic Forum and Greens for Spring."
"Sorry for such a poor rating, but I cooked as written and it just was not that tasty. It did taste better before I sprinkled on the balsamic vinegar."
"Delicious. I made this last night for dinner and we ate it up. I did add a ham hock while cooking the onins and garlic ..... yummy. Thank you for sharing, this is a great recipe and so good for you."
"Love this kale! It is a fast and easy meal or side plus it is really yummy!"
"Love this. And it's healthy too. I always add the vinegar, it just adds something extra to the taste.I've served to people who said they didn't like greens and watched them reach for seconds."
"Didn't realize until after I was prepped to cook that my onion was no good. I swapped in red bellpepper for the onion and used a little chicken broth. It turned out great!"
"Great recipe! I forgot to add the vinegar, but it still turned out delicious. I read some other reviews, and waited to put the garlic in until I added the kale. My husband even really liked this dish, and he isn't a kale fan. Thanks for putting this recipe up!"
"Wonderful! The key is to caramelize the onions first (took mine about 20 minutes), then add garlic right before you add the kale. The balsamic vinegar really adds to the dish so don't skip it! Thanks Daphne!"
