Sautéed Kale with Smoked Paprika
- 1 lb fresh kale, carefully rinsed, stems and center ribs cut away and discarded, leaves coarsely chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, sweet or hot
- Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a tablespoon of salt to the water. Kale tends to collect dirt in the leaf wrinkles, so rinse carefully before using. To prep, cut the leaf away from the center rib and stem of each leaf. Discard stems and center ribs.
Add the chopped kale. Cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Place large sauté pan on medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the smoked paprika and crushed red pepper. Add the kale and sauté for several more minutes. Sprinkle on more salt and smoked paprika to taste.
