We’ve made Larb a handful of how earlier than right here on WGC and in my cookbooks! There’s chicken larb, beef larb, larb lettuce wraps and if in case you have my most recent cookbook, salmon larb. These Mushroom Kale Larb Bowls aren’t tremendous conventional recipes – however they’re DELICIOUS!! And at this time, we’re bringing on to the desk for the vegetarians on the market / people who find themselves simply reducing again on meat however don’t wish to skip on taste.

These bowls are obsession worthy. If you happen to’re new to mushrooms, or don’t LOVE the feel, this might truly be an ideal recipe to begin with since they get actually caramelized and golden and are loaded with varied flavors.

Just a few notes on the recipe beneath:

  • Kale – you need to use both lacinato kale or curly kale. Each will work on this recipe though I choose the lacinato kale.
  • If you happen to can’t discover the mushrooms listed beneath, any mushroom would work, both wild or standard. Simply remember to chop them up so that they have a medium to small cube.
  • Coconut rice – all the time use the total fats coconut milk! If you happen to don’t have coconut milk, you need to use equal quantities of vegetable inventory and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to get that trace of coconut taste.
