What to do with all that kale…

IMG_9087One of the cool things about being a CSA member is getting different vegetables that I wouldn’t normally buy like bok choy and kale — got both of those this past Saturday. So I started looking for kale recipes to tonight’s dinner and found one that uses mushrooms, sick sweet potato and quinoa.

Quinoa With Mushrooms, see Kale, and Sweet Potatoes



  1. Place the quinoa and 2 cups water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and mushrooms and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden and beginning to soften, 5 to 6 minutes.
  4. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the kale, wine, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing often, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Serve the vegetables over the quinoa and sprinkle with the Parmesan.

Proof even the kiddo likes it!  However, next time I think I’ll do more of a caramelized sweet pototo just to add a little sweetness to the savory.
