  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or ghee, coconut oil or olive oil
  • 2 bunches of kale stems removed, leaves sliced
  • 1/2 a yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt + pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic grated or finely minced


  • Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add your cooking fat to the pan. Add the onions, season with a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and turning golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
