Spicy Peanut Kale Bowl

A delicious and flavorful vegan bowl featuring a homemade spicy peanut sauce, kale, and sauteed mushrooms.

Ingredients

PEANUT SAUCE

2
tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2
cup water
1
tablespoon tahini sauce
1
tablespoon sesame oil
2
inches fresh ginger, minced
1
tablespoon pickled ginger
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
tablespoon soy sauce
2
tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1
pinch brown sugar
1
pinch cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper
2
bunches fresh kale, chopped

MUSHROOMS

4
portabella mushrooms, sliced
2
teaspoons soy sauce
1/2
red onion, sliced
1/2
cup peanuts, chopped
1
tablespoon pickled ginger
2
tablespoons olive oil
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Cook rice, for serving

Directions

  • 1 Add all the peanut sauce except the kale to a large pot over medium heat and whisk together until the ingredients are all combined well.
  • 2 Chop up kale, cutting out any large pieces of stems.
  • 3 When sauce mixture is steaming, stir in kale and stir until kale starts to wilt slightly. The kale should be nicely covered with sauce.
  • 4 Remove from heat and cover to keep slightly warm, but the salad is also great at room temperature.
  • 5 For mushrooms, slice the mushrooms into 1/4 inch slices.
  • 6 In a large skillet, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add mushroom slices and cook until the mushrooms start to lose their liquid.
  • 7 Hit mushrooms with soy sauce and cook until soft, about 5-6 minutes total.
  • 8 For each bowl, pile some rice into a bowl and then top with peanut sauce and kale. On top of that add mushrooms and garnish with chopped peanuts, red onions, and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately!

Step By Step  

Portabello and Kale Rice Bowl with Spicy Peanut Sauce

As prepared by Macheesmo,

There’s this strange inaccuracy that I hear all the time: Vegetarian food is bland.


I think that’s because people are thinking of steamed carrots and bland veggie burgers!

The truth is that vegetarian food can be incredibly flavorful. Take for example, this spicy peanut kale bowl, which not only features some really hearty vegetables (kale and mushrooms) but also a spicy peanut sauce that is out-of-this-world flavorful.

 

Kale cleaned

Kale can be an intimidating veggie to work with because it comes in huge bunches and looks unwieldy (at best). The thing to remember when prepping the kale for this dish is to rinse it really well – dirt has a tendency to accumulate in the leaves. Second, cut out the large stems in the kale and then roughly chop it up!

 

It’s that simple.

 

Peanut sauce start

For the sauce, just add all the ingredients to a large pot over medium heat and stir until the ingredients are combined.

 

Peanut sauce cooked

Eventually the sauce will come together in a smooth mixture and smell amazing. When it becomes warm enough to start steaming, you are ready to go.

 

Kale added

The next step is kind of weird, but just toss in your kale! The heat from the pan and the sauce will gently wilt the kale but leave it slightly crunchy, which is nice.

 

Stir this all together so the sauce covers the leaves. At this point you can cover it if you want to serve the kale warm. It also works perfectly fine at room temperature.

 

Mushrooms sliced

The mushrooms are even easier than the kale. Just wash them well and then slice them into 1/4 inch slices.

 

In a large skillet, add some oil over medium heat and then toss in your mushrooms. As they cook add the soy sauce until they lose their moisture and start to soften, about 5-6 minutes.

 

Mushrooms cooked

These were my finished shrooms!

 

Now it’s just a matter of piling everything together. Start with a good rice base and then add the spicy kale mixture, sautéed mushrooms, and garnish the bowl with peanuts and cilantro.

I guarantee you won’t miss the meat in this guy. It’s flavorful and completely filling. Give it a shot if you’re looking for ways to work more veggies into your meals!
