lentils and kale

This summer I taught on a farm which was incredibly rewarding and allowed me to bring home lots of produce. Tonight I cooked kale for the first time and this meal came out so delish I had to share it with you all. It is a mix of a few recipes I found online.

You need...

1c dry lentils
2 c water
1 t rosemary (dry)
1 T tyme (fresh)

2 T olive oil
1/2 large white onion sliced or chopped
1 medium tomato (more would work well too) chopped
2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T brown sugar

3c Kale chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Cooked a cup of regular dry lentils with time and rosemary about 30mins.

Cooked the kale for about 8mins in a pot of boiling water.

In a saute pan I sweated out half a large white onion chopped, add the chopped tomato saute for 5mins, add balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, lentils, and salt and pepper. Combine, adjust seasonings to taste. I stirred in the kale but you could also serve the lentils on a bed of the kale which would be really pretty. Serves 4.
