Posted By Ellen Kanner On February 16, 2011 @ 8:50 pm In Hardy Greens,Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes | 4 Comments
For Ellen Kanner (Huffington Post’s Meatless Monday blogger, and the Miami Herald’s Edgy Veggie columnist), this is a favorite Thanksgiving dish, but you need not wait for a special occasion to enjoy it.
Serves: 6 to 8
Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
Remove stalks and fronds from fennel. Chop fennel bulb into bite-sized cubes, roughly 1 1/2 inches. Add chopped fennel to pot and saute 10 minutes or until tender. Add kale by the handful, stirring gently until wilted, but still bright green, about 8 minutes. Stir in sherry, pepper flakes and cranberries.
Recipe may be made up to a day ahead at this point. Cover well and refrigerate. Return to room temperature before proceeding.
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Spread walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 10 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant. Remove from oven and chop walnuts coarsely.
To serve: Gently reheat kale on stovetop over medium heat until heated through, about 8 minutes. Stir in walnuts. Add salt and pepper to taste.
