Kale with Sweet Corn

This content was last updated on April 10, 2020

Kale, a cruciferous vegetable and a nutritional powerhouse of a veggie, has a wide range of nutrients and phytochemicals. Kale is often associated with a distinct and often bitter flavor, however, pairing kale with vegetables high in natural sugars like corn and sweet onions creates a perfect balance. 


  • Water
  • 3/4 pound kale chopped, stems removed
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and chopped
  • 3/4 cup corn kernels, thawed from frozen or drained from can
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
