CASHEW CREAM
1 cup raw cashews
1½ water

KALE
2 Tbsp oil
1 small onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bunch of kale, stems removed, chopped (about 4 cups)
 cup white wine or white wine vinegar
1¼ cups cashew cream
salt and pepper to taste

Method

CASHEW CREAM
Place cashews in a blender and pour in enough of the water to cover. Blend into a paste. Add the rest of the water and blend until very smooth.

KALE
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic for a few minutes, until translucent, being careful not to burn.

Add kale and a bit of salt and sauté for a few minutes, until vibrantly green and slightly wilted.

Add wine and cook, uncovered, for about 5-7 minutes, until liquid is reduced and kale is tender.

Add cashew cream and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutess until cream is thickened. Add more if you want creamier kale. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Your kids might even like this side dish! In Nathan’s words: 3 out of 4 kids freaked out just at the sight of the kale. The other one ate 3 servings.
