In a large pan, heat the olive oil and add the onion, kale, and garlic. Sautee until the onions have caramelized and the kale has shrunk down. Set aside in a large bowl to cool.
Return the large pan to medium heat and add the 1 tsp of olive oil and 2 Tbsp minced garlic. Cook for one minute. Add the 2 Tbsp tomato paste and cook for an additional minute.
