Warm & Spicy Kale with Shiitake Mushrooms

 

Nothing beats a warm and fragrant dish on a cold winter night.

I made this recipe this weekend for a dinner party, after being inspired by the curried kale and chickpea dish at V Spot Cafe. It was a big hit, so I’m excited to share it with you…besides being super healthy, it’s super fast to put together.
 
Before I give you the recipe, of course I have to explain the benefits:
 
Turmeric: Highly anti-inflammatory and known as a potent protector against many types of cancer. 
 
Shitake Mushrooms: Excellent promoter of cardiovascular and immune health, they are also a great source of iron and B vitamins.
 
Kale: One of the most nutrient dense and anti-oxidant rich foods available, kale is a powerful blood and cell detoxifier.  
 
Alright, here is the recipe:

Instructions
  1. 1. Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a pan over medium low heat.
  2. 2. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute before adding the spices. Let cook an additional minute before adding ginger, bell pepper, shitake mushrooms, and chickpeas. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until the mushroom get glossy and the peppers start to get soft.
  3. 3. Add in the kale and cover, for 1 minute. It will start to shrink and turn bright green. You may have to add in batches, as it starts off with a lot of volume, but quickly shrinks down. Stir the kale, and cover an additional 2 minutes or so, until all of it is uniformly bright green and soft. Remove from heat, add salt and pepper to taste.
