It is a kind of cabbage and therefore grows in the winter. Today I prepared braised kale with sweet spices that everyone in my family enjoyed. Add white beans and you will have a complete meal; serve it as a side dish with meat, chicken or fish.
BRAISED KALE WITH SWEET SPICES
1 bunch of Lacinato Kale (washed and chopped)
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 onion (in 3 slices)
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon of curry powder
1/2 teaspoon of mustard seeds (crushed)
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (crushed)
Heat a deep pan and add olive oil and spices (cinnamon, curry powder, mustard seeds, turmeric and black pepper) and cook at medium heat for 2 minutes; add onion and kale and cook at medium-low heat until kale is tender (about 30 minutes). Season with salt and pepper.
