Savory Greens Stir-Fry

Savory Greens Stir-Fry

Serves 4

Kale is a chefs' favorite for simple leafy green sautés. The dark bluish-green, finely curled leaves are a visual treat while the mild, slightly peppery flavor blends with garlic, water chestnuts and mushrooms for a delightful dish. Also try chard, beet greens, mustard greens, spinach or a mixture of several varieties.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 1 (7-ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and thinly sliced
  • 3 shiitake mushrooms, sliced (if using dried, soak, discard the stems and slice)
  • 1 pound kale, washed and cut into large pieces
  • 1 teaspoon mirin (or seasoned brown rice vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon tamari (or high quality soy sauce)
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Ingredient Options: Combine several types of greens. Add 1 tablespoon of brown rice syrup along with the tamari. Use chard and add a cup of drained, chopped tomatoes after adding the greens. Top greens with chopped, roasted walnuts.

Method: 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and cook until onions are translucent. Be careful not to brown garlic or it will give a bitter taste.

Add water chestnuts and shiitake mushrooms. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add kale and sauté for 1 minute. Add mirin, tamari and pepper and continue cooking until kale is just tender.
