Sweet and Savory Kale with Almonds and Cranberries

One bunch of Kale

1 small onion chopped

1 clove of garlic minced

¾ cup of chicken stock

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp of honey

2 tbsp cider vinegar

Salt and pepper

Handful of dried cranberries

Handful of toasted slivered almonds

Wash the kale and rip into small – medium piece and put to the side.

In a large saucepan sauté the chopped onions until transparent and then add the garlic. Once you can smell the garlic add in the Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar, and chicken stock. Stir until everything is combined and bring to a boil then add the kale and cook covered for 5 mins. You will then add the dried cranberries and almonds and simmer uncovered for about 10mins.

This goes so well with fish or any meat

Just to give you an idea of how versatile this recipe can be, the other day I made the kale and mixed it with pan fried perogies in a bowl. It was an easy and quick dinner and sooo very tasty.
