It was getting out of hand. The plants were so big they were shading the cilantro. It was time to do some damage to the kale. And it was one of those tired nights when I didn’t feel like measuring, reading, or getting particularly creative. Just cook it and eat it. So here it is:
Kale with Shiitake Mushrooms & Couscous
Chop and wash the kale. It seemed like so much at first, but it cooks down quite a bit.
I use dehydrated shiitake mushrooms, so soak those while everything else cooks.
Saute the kale with a little oil, adding more as it shrinks.
After mushrooms have soaked for at least 15 minutes and all the kale is in the pan, I added rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Then tossed in the mushrooms with a bit of the water and covered on simmer for a few minutes.
Easy, fast and now the other plants in the garden can breathe!
