Ingredients

  • 2 large bunches kale (about 2-1/2 lb/1.125 kg total)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg

Method

Remove thick stalks from kale; chop leaves into coarse ribbons. Set aside.

In large Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until light golden, about 8 minutes.

Stir in half of the kale, the cream, broth, salt, pepper, nutmeg and 1/2 cup water, stirring to coat and adding remaining kale in batches as it wilts. Cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is tender and cream is thickened enough to coat leaves, 18 to 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool; cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Reheat to serve.)
