earlier this week

The weather is cooler here in Georgia. The garden still has tomatos ripening, and the kale I'd bought was still good and needed to be used. Here's what I put together:

bunch of kale, washed, ribbed and cut in smallish medium pieces
3 garden tomatoes, cut up
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic
 1 tsp. pimenton

I browned the onion in a pot til it was golden but not yet darkly caramelized. Added the tomatoes ,garlic and kale, the pimenton, a pinch of cayenne, a little water, covered pot and let it cook on med. heat. Checked every so often to assure moisture, added a little water. 

When the kale was tender, I set this aside and cooked a couple of pieces of mahi in the oven.
Served fish on top of kale, along with pitas I'd stuffed with a wonderful middle eastern spice Genia shared with me: zatar. More on that another time...
