Creamy Mushroom & Kale

This creamy mushroom & kale is a lightweight cream-based dish that one can eat without feeling overwhelmed by the rich texture of cream. If you prefer a light creamier taste as I do, this is a recipe that is perfect for home-cooking as one can tweak the consistency of the creamy sauce with ease. I used Portobello mushrooms, known for their earthy umami taste and ‘meaty’ feel, which is apt as this is a meatless dish. Kale is always my favourite and a perfect companion to mushrooms – I was lucky that I found some cheap air-flown kale from Prime Supermarket to make this dish.

Creamy Mushroom & Kale Ingredients

These are the 4 main ingredients for my creamy mushroom & kale:

  1. Mushroom – I am using portobello mushrooms. Cut/tear the mushroom coarsely to large chunks – they will taste and look better in this dish. You can use any favourite mushrooms (maitake, button, cremini etc) or a mushroom medley pack.
  2. Kale leaves – Remove the stem and cut/tear the leaves to smaller pieces. Wash and spin dry the kale leaves – this can be prepared in advance. Store the washed kale leaves in a food ziplock bag. I often prepared kale this way on the very same day of purchase and they lasted for a few more days longer in the fridge.
  3. Cream – I am using Emborg pasta cream as it was on sale. You can use most types of cooking cream for this recipe.
  4. Meatless soup concentrate – I dissolved a mix of mushroom seasoning powder and dashi powder in hot water. The combination of mushroom + dashi powder gave the meatless creamy sauce a delicious savoury depth. I dissolved the granules in hot water when I made this dish, but I later streamlined the recipe to add it directly to the pan. You can use any favourite soup granules for this recipe.

  1. That looks like a nice meal, esp. if you eat kale.

  2. The kale looks so fresh and clean! Not kidding but the ones I get here, they are sometimes so pathetic-looking – brownish patches, black spots….
