Spicy Braised Kale

Serves 4 to 6

  • 1 1/2 pounds kale, stems removed
  • 2 cups chopped canned tomatoes and their juice or 3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cup minced onions
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce or ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Wash the greens. Remove the large stems and any discolored leaves. Stack the leaves and slice them crosswise into 1/8-inch strips.

Combine tomatoes, onions, cumin, garlic, Tabasco, and salt in a saucepan, cover, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the greens, cover and gently simmer, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes until the greens are tender. Add pepper to taste and serve.
