Ever since, I have been experimenting with different flavours and ingredient combinations. In the future I will definitely be posting my favourite versions of this delicious recipe. Stay tuned… But in the meantime enjoy this one… I did. Yes I know kale again. But hey it is good for you!

Ingredients

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 big bunch of kale, wash then chop

1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes, chopped

1/4 cup chorizo, sliced thin

1 1/2cup of goat cheese, grated ( I used a hard goat cheese so it had to be grated but a soft goat cheese will work just as well)

4 large portobello mushroom cups, cleaned

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 F

– Use a spoon to scrape the gills from the mushroom caps. I found that using a grapefruit spoon makes the job easy. Remember to be careful when scrapping as the mushroom are rather delicate around the edges.

– (Don’t use any oil as there is enough in the chorizo to grease the pan) Heat a large sauté pan, add in chorizo and garlic. Sauté until garlic is golden. Take about 4-5 minutes.

– Add in kale and sun dried tomatoes and stir until kale starts to wilt, about 5-6 minutes. Turn off heat and put aside.

– Take your cleaned out portobellos and brush the inside of the cap with olive oil.

– Divide your kale mixture between the 4 mushroom cups and then spring them all with the goat cheese.

– Bake for about 15-20 min until the mushrooms are tender. Once ready, I like to turn the oven to broil and leave them in for 2-3 minutes so that the cheese gets a little crispy and golden. Serve hot and enjoy!
