  • 1 medium onion, cut in thin strips lengthwise

This deceptively simple recipe yields an unusually complex combination of flavors and textures with few ingredients. To toast hazelnuts, spread on a rimmed baking sheet, toast in a 350-degree oven for 5–10 minutes, and then rub in a towel to remove skins. This can also be made with cooked chestnuts, which add a meatier texture.

  1. Blanch kale in boiling salted water for about 3 minutes; drain and refresh in cold water. Squeeze out excess water and chop leaves coarsely
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pot and add onion strips. Sauté for about 4 minutes, stirring often. Add salt and pepper and continue cooking, stirring often, until onions begin to color. Add currants and stir for about 1 minute. Add kale and stir well. Cook, stirring frequently, until kale is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and sprinkle with hazelnuts. Serve at once.
