Dinosaur Kale and Mushroom Saute

Holiday Side Dishes: Sauté of Dinosaur Kale with Oyster & Shitake Mushrooms

Posted on 12/09/2013

Kale is a super food that Chef Marko recommends consuming daily. It’s loaded with tons of nutrients and tastes delicious. Actually called Lacinato Kale, this variety gets it’s name from the fact that it has a reptilian looking appearance. Dinosaur Kale is Chef’s  favorite variety, especially during the colder months of the year.


Note: You will need to remove the stems from the kale and mushrooms but instead of throwing them out hold on to them for my veggie stocks.

Cut kale and in thin strips and set aside.

Using a large wide pan, sauté 1 sliced red onions with 1 T. olive oil


¼ cup diced ginger

1 T.  diced garlic

Add 2 cups sliced mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes

Add kale and cook for 3 minutes

Add small amount of veggie stock

Finish with a splash of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce.
