  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard, sugar, vinegar, and chicken stock, and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the kale, cover, and cook 5 minutes until wilted.
  2. Stir in the dried cranberries, and continue boiling, uncovered, until the liquid has reduced by about half, and the cranberries have softened, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with sliced almonds before serving.

Well, I have to admit that it was very good. I have never had kale, or any other "southern" type of green. They used to sound kinda gross to me. But, my CSA box sent me a bunch of kale and I wan...

This recipe is fine if you don't want to taste kale. Even if you quadruple the amount of kale, the vinegar and mustard taste just over powers the flavor of everything else. 1.5 cups of chicken b...

Wow! I've never made Kale before and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty this recipe was. I searched the internet for a recipe for Kale and this one appealed to me the most. I did not have d...

I totally messed with this recipe, but have to say that the essential greens/dried fruit combo was even better than I had hoped. We didn't have enough kale, so used half kale and half mustard gr...

We had this recipe for dinner tonight. It was excellent. I couldn't find the dijon mustard so I used whatever mustard I could find and it was still good. It was more sweet than savory but that w...

I have never eaten kale in my life, but am making an honest effort to put more leafy greens into my diet. I can see where it may be too sweet for some and it wouldn't hurt to cut out a bit of s...

Needed something to do with the Kale from my CSA that wasn't a soup. I've never had Kale before. This was very good. Next time I'll go lighter on the mustard. Once it cooks down, I'd say it'...

Being southern I love all the leafy green vegetables - my Yankee husband is not accustomed to them - so when he loved this dish I was thrilled. I didn't have enough dried cranberries, so I added...

This dish was quite nice. I didn't realize till I got in that I didn't have any Dijon mustard. I added mustard seeds and french's instead. I only added about 2 tsbp of sugar, and personally I...
