1 bunch kale, tough stems and center ribs removed and leaves chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped walnuts and/or slivered raw almonds, very lightly toasted*

If using fresh corn, boil ears of corn until tender, about 4 minutes. Cut kernels from cobs with a sharp knife. Set aside.

Steam the kale for 10 minutes or until tender. When the kale is done, place in a colander and press to remove excess liquid.

Reduce heat to low and cook until kale and corn are heated through, stirring frequently. Toss in the lightly toasted nuts and season with black pepper if desired. Top with finely chopped scallions.
