Sauteed Kale & Mushrooms

Kale, a type of cabbage,  is a POWERHOUSE of vitamins.  It contains a chemical called “sulforaphane”, which is known for fighting cancer. Kale is also an excellent source of antioxidants & fiber.  So, in a nutshell, it is “good for you” and tastes good too!  I LOVE mushrooms & add them to everything I possibly can.  I found this recipe for sauteed kale by Bobby Flay on Food Network & adapted it very slightly.  Treat your body good & enjoy this flavorful, vitamin-packed vegetable :-)
