If you’re looking for something different to do with kale other than making kale chips, here’s a delicious veggie combo to try. It’s quick and easy to make and can easily be adjusted to your flavor preferences.
Below is a video where I demonstrate how to make this dish. The written recipe is below the video.
Kale, Carrot, and Mushroom Combo
Makes 3 to 4 Side Servings
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil*
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 carrot, finely chopped or cut into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 to 8 oz mushrooms of choice, sliced
1 bunch (about 8 oz) fresh kale, large stems removed and leaves cut into medium size pieces
About 1/2 cup of water…as needed
Salt and pepper to taste
About 1-1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar
Heat a large pot over slightly above medium heat. Add the olive oil and allow it to heat up very briefly. Add the onion and carrot; sauté until they just start to soften. Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté briefly just until the mushrooms start to release juices. Add the kale. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the vegetables and lightly stir them. Add a small amount of water. Cover the pan and allow vegetables to steam until tender to your liking, about 5 to 15 minutes. IMPORTANT…Stir often and monitor the water level, adding a little water at a time to prevent the pan from becoming dry and the vegetables from burning.
When the vegetables are as tender as you like, remove them from the heat and stir in the lemon juice or red wine vinegar. Enjoy!
*If you prefer, the oil can be omitted and the vegetables can be sautéed in water or stock of choice.
