  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the cashews and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl; toss to coat the cashews in the oil. Spread onto a baking sheet.
  3. Toast the cashews in the preheated oven until golden brown and fragrant, shaking the baking sheet occasionally, 5 to 10 minutes. Watch carefully so they don't burn. Set aside.
  4. Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Cook and stir the onion in the hot oil until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Stir the garlic into the onion, and cook for 1 minute more before stirring the kale into the onion and garlic mixture. Place a cover on the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale softens, about 7 minutes. Stir the spinach into the mixture, season with the sea salt and white pepper, and continue cooking until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Toss the cashews with the mixture to serve.

This is delicious. I used all kale (approx. 1 lb.), butter instead of olive oil, and almonds instead of cashews. So, so good.

Good, but missing something. Next time I may try throwing something else in it too, like a splash of white wine or cranberries or parmesian cheese.

FYI: garlic should be minced. I failed to write that in the directions.

This was a great recipe! My husband and I loved it! Not so many KALE recipes out there to choose from. Thanks again! We will make it again! From Ketchupmustardtak!

It is excellent by itself but on different occasions I have mixed in seasoned chicken and/or also added garlic shrimp to this dish with wonderful results.
