    A healthy recipe - kale, mushrooms, beans and CHEESE

    This is called Tuscan Bean and Kale Casserole. I wasn't sure I was going to like this, but I had a bunch of kale I had to either use up or throw away. A caveat: I didn't measure the amount of kale I used, so it may have been less than the 8 cups. (It was a big bag of kale - kinda looked like 8 cups!)

    I also was concerned about taste, as the recipe doesn't call for any seasonings at all. But - the secret to the good taste was in the freshly grated cheese and the lemon juice. It was surprisingly delicious.

    Next time I make this: I will not cover the whole batch with the topping. Rather, I will scoop out some of the casserole and put it in a single serving dish. I'll put some of the topping on that and put that amount under the broiler. (Rinse and repeat until all is gone!)

    That sounds good. Did you just use the common mushrooms you can buy in the produce department anywhere?

      Love me some KALE!!
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

          My grocery store carries the crimmini mushrooms recommended in the recipe, but I think the type that is commonly available would be just as good. BTW - when I make this again I am adding more mushrooms, as they are a favorite. I think I am going to add some carmelized onions as well. Heck, you could almost add/substitute many vegetables, but they would have to be those that don't get too mushy.

            I haven't cooked with it too often. Last winter I made a soup with kale in it. The kale was good, but overall I didn't care for the soup. I will keep on trying other kale recipes - it is supposed to be very healthy.

              Sylvia, I had never been a big fan of kale until I saw it using the ingredients we had used for German green bean and I love it this way.
              Fry some bacon(I used a half of a package of bacon). Put bacon aside to cool and then crumble it). Fry a large chopped onion in the bacon fat then put aside). Sprinkle kale with about 3 or 4 tbps of flour with lots of salt and pepper mixed in the flour. Then put the kale in a large pot and almost completely cover with water. Stir in the onion and crumbled bacon. (I think I added any bacon fat left over). Stir and simmer until kale is done. You do have to have quite a bit on pepper in there. The water flavors and thickens a bit and forms a gravy. Growing up when done with the beans we didn't know what to call it so we gave it the fancy name of "Beans with the Glop". Years later I did see the recipe listed under the name of German Green Beans.

              Sorry I never measured the ingredient, just did it by eye.
