Kale, collard greens and swiss chard are all equally delicious in this simple side dish. Make sure to simmer the greens until tender and add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes when you add the broth, if you like.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 1/4 pound kale, collards, or chard, stems and tough ribs removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth

Method: 
Cut the leaves of the greens into large pieces. Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in greens and season with salt. Pour in broth, stir, cover and simmer until greens are tender, about 20 minutes for kale and chard, and closer to 30 minutes for collards.
