How to Make It
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, anchovies and tomato paste and cook over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until the tomato paste is deep red, about 7 minutes. Add the kale, radishes and 1/2 cup of water and cook, stirring, until the kale is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and chives, season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
