Cranberry Balsamic Sautéed Kale

In the fall, I like to get my tastebuds ready for Thanksgiving. When I think of fall and Thanksgiving, I think of cranberries, roasted meat, and all sorts of squash and pumpkin. My go-t0 fall dinner party meal includes butternut squash risotto, roasted pork chops and this cranberry balsamic braised kale. This kale dish has a good amount of acid, a little bit of sweet and a little bitter from the kale. This dish helps cut the richness of the butternut squash risotto.



2 Tbsp craisins
1/4 cup boiling water
1 tsp olive oil
1 bunch kale
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp whole grain mustard
1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
Salt & pepper to taste



Soak the craisins in the boiling water for 5 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium. Tear the kale into the hot pan. Add all other ingredients to the pan. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the kale is wilted.
