Number of Servings: 4 (278g)
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.


  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1½ lbs. curly kale (about 12 cups lightly packed, washed, stems removed, and chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced shallots
  • ¾ cup apple juice
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 peach, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bring large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Spread nuts in pie pan or on baking sheet. Roast for 5 minutes. Stir and bake 3 minutes longer. Immediately transfer nuts to plate to cool, and set aside.
  3. Add kale to pot of water, pushing it down with wooden spoon. Cook until kale is bright green and crisp-tender (3-4 minutes). Do not overcook. With slotted spoon, transfer kale to colander and set under cold running water to cool.
  4. A handful at a time, squeeze most of the moisture from kale.
  5. Heat oil in heavy, medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until limp and translucent (3-4 minutes).
  6. Add kale, apple juice, and cayenne. Stir occasionally, until kale is cooked to your taste and most liquid has evaporated (5-6 minutes).
  7. Spoon kale into shallow, wide serving bowl. Sprinkle on nuts and arrange peaches over kale. Serve hot or lukewarm.
