Ingredients

1 tablespoon 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.


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onions and sauté 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.

Notes

Kale is a chefs' favorite for simple leafy green sautées. 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.
