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.
