  • Persons: 3

  • Ingredients
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 small red onions, thinly sliced
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) white wine
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) white wine vinegar

  1. Instructions
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until softened and slightly caramelised. Now add the white wine, vinegar, sugar and 1 ⁄4 cup (60ml) water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 7-8 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by half.
  3. Add the kale and currants to the pan. Add 1-2 tbs water, cover with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the kale collapses and wilts. Remove the lid and cook, stirring occasionally, for a further 5 minutes. Transfer to a platter and serve at once.
