Easy Kale with Mushrooms

1 bunch of kale
4-5 mushrooms
1-3 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp. of olive oil
soy sauce
sesame oil (optional)

Wash and dry the kale; chop 1" crosswise. Slice mushrooms. Cut garlic cloves into thin slivers.

Heat oil in a large frying pan (preferably with a lid) over medium high heat. Add garlic, cooking until almost golden. Add mushrooms. The mushrooms tend to absorb all the oil so when it starts to look dry, sprinkle a bit of water into the pan. Stir fry mushrooms until they are almost starting to brown. Add chopped kale, a bit more water and cover. Lower the heat to medium and let steam until kale is bright green. Remove lid, add soy sauce (I usually swish in about a tablespoon or two) and stir, bringing the mushrooms and garlic to the top. Remove from heat. Stir in a few drops of sesame oil and serve over rice.
