Serves 4 – 6
1 ½ lbs. Kale or collard greens
2 cups chopped canned tomatoes and their juice or 3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
1 cup minced onion
1 ½ tsp ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp sea salt or wheat free tamari
ground black pepper to taste
Wash the greens. Remove the large stems and any discolored leaves. Stack the leaves and slice them crosswise into 1/8-inch strips.
Combine the tomatoes, onions, cumin, garlic, cayenne, and salt or soy sauce in a saucepan, cover, and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the greens, cover, and gently simmer, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes, until the greens are tender. If necessary, add a little water during the cooking to maintain liquid in the bottom of the pan.
Add pepper to taste and serve hot.
