    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.

    Chop up kale, cutting out any large pieces of stems.

    When sauce mixture is steaming, stir in kale and stir until kale starts to wilt slightly. The kale should be nicely covered with sauce.

More About This Recipe

  • 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 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. 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!
