Sautéed kale with mushrooms is a healthy recipe for families looking for an easy side dish.  It’s low carb, clean eating, and tastes amazing.  Reap the great health benefits of kale tonight by filling up a bowl with orzo pasta and topping it with this simple kale recipe.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced (about 6 cloves)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 pound kale, rinsed and cut into pieces
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven, then sauté the minced garlic until fragrant, about a minute.
  2. While the olive oil is heating up in the Dutch oven, melt the butter in a large frying pan.  Add the mushrooms and cook over medium high heat until the mushrooms are golden brown and all the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Once the garlic is done, stir in the kale a little at a time.  Pour in the chicken stock, cover, and cook for 5 minutes over medium high heat.  The kale will significantly reduce in volume and will turn a bright green.
  4. Uncover the pot and cook for another minute, or until the chicken stock has evaporated.
  5. Remove from the heat and season with salt, black pepper, and white wine vinegar.  Add the mushrooms and toss until well combined.  Serve as a side dish or mixed in with orzo pasta.


  • Use kale that is pre-cut and pre-washed to save time.
  • Swap out different kinds of vinegars or oils for a slight variation.
