Fried Kale with Mushrooms and Bacon

After making fresh creamed spinach, I wanted to try some kale. I love how it has a more delicate flavor than spinach. I thought since I love mushrooms that I would put them in with the kale. Of course, onions & garlic are a must and I had some bacon still in the refrig and I couldn't resist. Love the turmeric with this dish, as I had read that it is very good for you and so I thought I would try it with the kale too. My Dad loved this Kale and looks forward to having it again.

Such a wonderfully savory side dish! This recipe reminded me a bit of the spinach salad with hot bacon dressing that my grandma used to make... only modernized to the max! Enjoy.

Ingredients

1 bunch
fresh kale, chopped
1 c
white mushrooms, sliced
4 slice
bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 medium
yellow onion, diced
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
2 tsp
turmeric, ground
2 Tbsp
red wine vinegar
2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
pepper
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 Tbsp
butter
1-2 tsp
lemon juice, fresh squeezed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Fry up the bacon and then set aside. Sauté the onions in oil and butter for a few minutes and then add your mushrooms. Let them cook down for 5 minutes and then add your chopped up kale, garlic, vinegar and turmeric. Cover with a lid for about 30 minutes on a medium heat; stirring occasionally.
2
Give it a stir 2 or 3 times while waiting for kale to cook down. I added a 1/4 cup of water because it seemed too dry in the pan. Crumble your bacon and add to your pan. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
