Prep: 5 minutes
If you’re not a fan of kale, have you tried it cooked with caramelized onions? Give this recipe a try to get your fill of tasty nutrients!
“Kale contains nutrients that support healthy skin, hair and bones,” says Robyn Rohrig, R.D.-N. at Carilion Clinic. “Spinach could also be a substitute green in this side dish. However, kale provides twice the amount of vitamin C.”
A tip for this dish: if the onions begin to char or stick to the bottom of the pan, reduce heat to low and add a little bit of olive oil.
