Sauteed Kale & Mushrooms

I thought I had shared this recipe before, but I guess not. We recently discovered kale, a bit late but better late than never! We don't really like it raw unless it's super fresh (don't like bitter), so we usually saute it with some mushrooms.

Sometimes we add onions, but most times not. Tonight, I stirred in a splash of lemon juice just before serving.

Easy, delicious, and good for you! Here's how to make it, so you can enjoy it too!

Sauteed Kale & Mushrooms
Serves about 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 small onion, diced (maybe 1/4 cup, optional)
8 to 12 mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch kale, washed and torn, green stems removed

Heat olive oil and butter together in a large pan over medium heat while you dice the onions. Add onions to the pan, then wash and slice the mushrooms. Add mushrooms to the pan and saute for a few minutes. Add kale to pan, stir together and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is bright green and mushrooms are cooked.

*If your kale is still bitter, turn heat to low and cook more until it's not.

Looks awesome, but personally I just don't care for kale - any ideas for a substitution? Spinach maybe?

Tamy, spinach wilts too much while kale holds it's shape and has a better texture. I don't know...I can tell you the kale tastes totally different when it's cooked like this!
