This delicious recipe was inspired by two of Dr. Fuhrman’s daughters, Cara and Jenna, from @doctorsdaughters on Instagram! This dish was one of their favorites growing up! I made a version of it in the ETLD Test Kitchen and it blew my socks off. I could eat a pound of Kale with this recipe… Seriously. We just added mushrooms, and a little lemon and garlic… SO GOOD!!!

  1. Chop kale and mushrooms to desired size (there's no rule here - just do it as you like...)
  2. Steam Kale and Mushrooms for 2-5 minutes until tender. Don't overdo it!
Cashew Sauce
  1. Into a blender cup, place cashews, 1 cup water, lemon juice, and garlic and blend on high until smooth
  2. Pour cashew cream sauce over steamed Kale, mix together and serve.
  3. Added salt is not recommended on a nutritarian diet, but as Dr. Furhman explains, a sprinkle may be used on top if you wish!
