Kale with Bacon and Mushrooms

Kale With Bacon And Mushrooms

A modern classic! This recipe perfectly balances the pronounced flavor of kale with bacon, mushrooms and spices.


  • 1 large bunch kale
  • 2 tsp Cajun Spice
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 cups mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • ½ cup white wine


  1. 1

    Wash chard and separate leaves from stems. Chop leaves roughly and cut stems into ¾-inch pieces. Grind Cajun Spices and pepper.

  2. 2

    Chop bacon into 1-inch cubes. Place oil in a pot on medium heat and sauté bacon until golden, around 5 minutes. Add ground spices, garlic and scallions, then tomato paste and continue cooking 2-3 minutes more.

  3. 3

    Chop or slice mushrooms. Add to the pot with tomatoes, stir and sauté for 3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add chicken stock and wine and bring to a boil. Simmer until mushrooms are cooked. Incorporate chopped kale and let simmer gently a few more minutes. Add salt, if needed.
