Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups polenta
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Directions
  • In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and kale, season with salt and pepper, to taste, and cook until wilted. Set aside to cool.

  • Once the mixture has cooled, add to a food processor and process until very smooth. Add a little water, if necessary, to help make a smooth mixture.

  • In another large pot, bring 5 cups of water and 2 cups heavy cream to a boil over medium heat. Whisk in the polenta and stir constantly until the polenta is creamy, about 20 minutes. If the mixture becomes too thick, add a little more water or cream.

  • Stir in the butter and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Fold in the kale and the Parmesan and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Turn out into a serving bowl and serve.
