Kale and Mushroom Side


I make this at least twice a week for my family. It is a super easy and yummy way for us to get a good dose of our dark leafy greens. Macadamia nut oil is also good in place of grapeseed if you have it.

  • 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • ½ cup sliced shiitake mushrooms

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 bunch kale leaves, torn (ribs removed and discarded)

  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg


  1. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion, mushrooms, and garlic in hot oil until the mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes. Add butter and vinegar to the mushroom mixture; season with salt and pepper. Toss mushroom mixture in the wok until the butter melts and coats everything, about 1 minute.

  2. Switch heat off and add kale to the wok; cook and stir in the hot wok until the kale is bright green, about 5 minutes. Season kale mixture with nutmeg and stir.

Cook's Note:

For a more saucy mixture add 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock.

If you don't have shiitake mushrooms you can substitute any type of mushroom.

A nice addition to this dish is pine nuts; add them when you first start so they roast a little.
