*This recipe was made using the Sun Basket ingredient delivery service.
½ lb. loose sweet Italian sausage
1 yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
½ teaspoon Aleppo pepper
Half head radicchio
8 ounces washed and prepped Red Russian kale
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1. Brown Sausage
In a medium pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add sausage and cook, stirring occasionally to break up the meat, until well browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate, leaving any grease and drippings in the pan.
WHILE SAUSAGE COOKS:
- Halve fennel and cut into thin slices.
- Peel onion and cut into thin slices.
- Peel garlic and cut into thin slices.
2. Sauté onion, fennel
Add onion to the pan, season with salt and cook over medium heat until the onion is just beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add fennel, garlic, and Aleppo pepper, and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
WHILE THE VEGETABLES COOK:
- Cut radicchio into thin slices.
3. Cook kale, radicchio
Add the kale, radicchio, ¼ cup water, and to the pan and season with salt. Continue cooking over medium heat until the kale and radicchio have wilted, about 3 minutes longer. Add the sausage back to the pan and toss to combine. Stir in the sherry vinegar and keep tossing until flavors have infused, 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Divide evenly between two plates and serve warm.
