one of my favorite ways to enjoy brussel sprouts is when they are pan seared with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. my mom started making them that way a few years ago, and i absolutely love them like that as a side dish.
i had some kale at home, so i decided to prepare it the same way. the kale went great with the dried cranberries and the walnuts. it was a great side dish that went with so many different dinners.
sauteed kale with dried cranberries and walnuts
prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes
yields: 4-5 servings
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large bunch of kale, de-stemmed and chopped

in a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. add the kale and saute, stirring frequently, until cooked throughout (about 5-6 minutes). add in the cranberries and walnuts, toss well. season with salt and pepper to taste. serve warm.
