This side dish has the perfect balance of citrus and spice. We love using baby kale-it's quicker than regular kale on prep and cooking time but still packed full of vitamins K and C and the nutrient lutein (reportedly good for eye health).



  1. Melt the butter with the oil in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the orange juice and lemon juice and cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the kale in batches, tossing with tongs until it begins to wilt, then adding more; continue until all the kale is wilted, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the orange zest, 3/4 teaspoon salt, a few grinds of black pepper, coriander and red pepper flakes and toss to combine. Transfer the kale with tongs to a serving bowl or platter and serve warm.
