Fried Kale with Mushrooms and Bacon

Cook time: 25 Min  Prep time: 10 Min  Serves: 4 people


1 bunch fresh kale, chopped
1 c white mushrooms, sliced
4 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp turmeric, ground
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1 Tbsp butter
1-2 tsp lemon juice, fresh squeezed


1. Fry up the bacon and then set aside. Sauté the onions in oil and butter for a few minutes and then add your mushrooms. Let them cook down for 5 minutes and then add your chopped up kale, garlic, vinegar and turmeric. Cover with a lid for about 30 minutes on a medium heat; stirring occasionally.
2. Give it a stir 2 or 3 times while waiting for kale to cook down. I added a 1/4 cup of water because it seemed too dry in the pan. Crumble your bacon and add to your pan. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
