  • 1 lb Kale
  • 3 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 1 pear, medium (approx 2-1/2 per lb) Pears

  4. Add curry and nutmeg and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add kale and salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Serve warm.
