This was good - definitely healthy - but the husband wasn't a fan.
I didn't have a pound of kale, so I just used what I had.  Omitted the mushrooms - used a whole little can of green chilies - a whole can of corn - one can of black beans - a red pepper - one fresh tomato - and tons of spices.  I added two of my veggie broth ice cubes towards the end because there still wasn't a lot of flavor.
Served over quinoa.  Good with sriracha.


YUMMY!! This is the only tasty way that I've found to eat greens! This makes so much too! I had enough for 3-4 lunches and it was delicious every time. I want to play around with different veggies to add more variety. Que Delicioso!


great combo of veggies - very healthy and tasty!  however, I changed the seasonings because I didn't have green chili or even chili powder.  (it's probably somewhere in my spice cabinet.)  I used chipotle chili sauce, which made it deliciously spicy and smoky, and threw in some poultry seasoning on a whim.  I really liked it that way.  also, I used canned tomatoes and cooked them in the pan with everything else.  I got about three lunches out of this.

I had to try this 'cause I'm from Texas and I never had greens this way before.
