It's cold here in New York, like really cold. This mild winter we have been having came to a halt yesterday with temperatures in the teens. I cant seem to seem to keep warm and I drink tea all day. While making a quick run into the city for a meeting, I decided to stroll through the farmers market. Amazed with the dedication of the farmers. Standing all day in these harsh weather conditions to sell us vegetables, I thanked them. While its slim pickens I did manage to find some beautiful baby kale and wild mushrooms. A warm wintery salad I thought, for me eating is all about choosing the best ingredients, never over thinking a dish and making it as simple as possible. I roasted these beautiful mushrooms and tossed them warm with the baby kale, shaved some manchego cheese on top and you have a warm healthy lunch in no time at all.
1 bunch of baby curly kale (regular kale is fine)
1 pound of wild mushrooms
sea salt and pepper
