Kale with Prunes and Onions

We had no idea what was for supper tonight.  Mark and I are both tired and didn't feel like doing much.  I knew I wanted something healthy and "green", no more nachos or baked potatoes, or whatever is in the pantry.  I raided the fridge instead and we are ever so glad.

Kale with Prunes and Onions

1 large bag of chopped/pre-washed kale(or 2 bunches, torn and rinsed)
1 small red onion, in slivers
7-8 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
red pepper flakes to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup water

Heat oils and add onion.  I cooked mine in a 13-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.  When onion is soft, add garlic and pepper flakes and cook for another 4-5 minutes.  Add kale by the handful, pressing down with a large spoon or spatula.  Turn over carefully for a few minutes, add water and cover.  Let cook for 10 minutes or so, until wilted but not too soft.

1 tablespoon each, lemon juice and soy sauce
12 bite sized prunes, cut in thirds
1/2 cup water

Add the rest of the ingredients, cover and let cook over med-low heat until kale is soft and prunes are mooshy.  Serve in bowls by itself, over pasta, polenta, mashed potatoes, or quinoa.  We ate it plain and LOVED it!!!
