Kale, Red Onions and Almonds in Coconut Oil

Kale Red Onion Coconut Oil

There is nothing quite like the smell of cooking red onions in coconut oil. This side dish is super nutritious and satisfying…though I was expecting to have leftovers for another snack or two, I just sat there and ate the entire thing.

Serves: 3
Time: 10 minutes

1 tbsp coconut oil
1/3 red onion
4-6 leaves of kale
slivered almonds to taste
salt to taste


1. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over low-medium heat.

2. Julienne the red onion, and when the oil is heated add it to the pan. Cook until it begins to get translucent, about 5 minutes.

3. Remove the thick stems from the kale and cut into bite-size pieces. Add to the pan, mix in so that the kale is coated in coconut oil and then cover the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

4. When the kale has cooked down a bit and is bright green, remove from heat and add salt and almonds. Mix and serve.
