“From our CSA box via Martha Stewart Living and adapted by me. Note: When Meyer lemons are available here again, I will test using one Meyer lemon and possibly update the recipe... Spinach, bok choy,( maybe arugula?) can replace the kale if desired.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium walla walla onion, peeled and sliced into crescents
  • 1 medium lemon (sliced thinly, seeds removed and slices cut into eighths)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or 1 tablespoon Agave
  • 1 12 lbs kale, tough stems & ribs removed, leaves chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • salt, to taste
  • cracked black pepper, to taste


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion, lemon and honey and cook, stirring, until lemon begins to break down and the honey and onion start to caramelize, about 3-4 minutes. *LOWER* heat if the honey starts to burn though!
  3. Add kale and garlic; cook, stirring, until kale is just wilted, abut 2 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and cracked black pepper.
