Simple Kale with Mushrooms (SuperFood)

Kathie Carr


This recipe was originally published in Redbook some time ago.

I had been hearing about the Superfood value of kale from several people. So finally I decided to try kale. I think I was fortunate to find this recipe.

Since I love mushrooms this made it easier to try a new food. And I actually liked it!

If you have never eaten kale start with more mshrooms and less kale than called for to get used to the different and new taste.
