V Savory Kale
1 onion thinly sliced
1 large bunch fresh kale, collards, or chard
several tablespoons water
1 tablespoon tomato paste
In a large frying pan saute onion in 1-2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat until brown and crisp; remove and place in serving dish.
Stack greens, roll together and slice about 1/4 in thick; saute in frying pan for 1 minute.
Add water and salt, cover and reduce heat to steam until tender. Add water as needed. Kale and collards cook in 10-15 minutes; chard cooks a bit faster. When the greens are tender, drain in a colander. Return onions to pan and heat to sizzling.
Add tomato paste and stir. When this mixture is hot, return the greens to the pan. Mix, heat through, and serve.
