Wild Mushroom Salad

Wild Mushroom Salad
  • Prep 15 min
  • Total 20 min
  • Ingredients 14
  • Servings 2
This salad takes just a few minutes to prepare and I like to call it a “super salad” because it’s filled with vitamins, minerals, proteins, fiber and antioxidants. It can be served hot or cold, as a main dish or side. It’s super easy to make, it’s nutritious and satisfies every appetite.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 3 cloves garlic, mashed or lightly chopped
  • 1 leek, without roots, white part only, washed and thinly sliced
  • 16 oz wild mushrooms, clean
  • Pinch of sea or Kosher salt
  • 1 whole bunch of kale, stems removed, washed and lightly chopped
  • 1/2 -1 tablespoon liquid aminos
  • Pinch (or to taste) red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • Raisins (optional)
  • Pumpkin seeds, nuts or sunflower seeds (optional)
  • Green onions or chives, for garnish (optional)
  • Queso fresco cheese, manchego, gruyere or feta, for garnish (optional)
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat a large pan over medium heat.
  • 2
    Add the coconut or olive oil and let it heat a bit.
  • 3
    Add the garlic and leek, lower the heat and let cook until they give off an aroma and lose some of their texture. They will become tender, about 3 minutes.
  • 4
    Add the mushrooms. Mix with a wooden spoon to combine them well and cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt (just a little) to absorb the excess humidity of the mushrooms. Mix again.
  • 5
    Add the cabbage, mix well and cook until it’s green and lightly withered. 4-5 minutes.
  • 6
    Add the liquid aminos and mix well.
  • 7
    Add the ground red pepper, ginger and raisins. Cook for 1-2 more minutes.
  • 8
    If you use seeds or nuts, add them now. Mix well and cook 1 minute more over low heat. Serve hot or cold, with rice, quinoa and chopped chives. Add cheese if you like.

Expert Tips

  • Mushrooms are filled with moisture. Sauté them with salt before cooking to absorb some of the moisture and give them a bit of color and flavor.
