  • 4 cups cooked wild rice
  • 1 cup crumbled sausage cooked
  • 6 cups kale
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 1 cup mushrooms See Note
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage coarsely chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper


Ingredient preparation

  • In warm pan over medium heat, add in butter and let melt. Once melted and turning slightly golden in color, add in mushrooms, sage, sprigs of thyme. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. When mushrooms are golden brown (I like them almost crispy) and tender, remove pan from heat. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • While mushrooms are cooking, warm large sauté pan over medium heat. Once hot, add in olive oil and let warm. Once olive oil is hot, but not smoking, add in garlic and let cook for about 30 seconds. It should start to turn golden but not burn.
  • After the 30 seconds, add kale into pan with garlic and stir. Season the kale with salt, and 1-2 tbsp coconut aminos based on taste preference. Let kale cook until tender. Remove from heat and season with splash of lemon juice, pepper, and any extra salt.
  • Warm leftover rice on stovetop or microwave. Add in a sprinkle of water before heating rice to keep it moist.
  • In large saute pan, using fat of choice, fry up your eggs and cook until preferred doneness. Season with salt and pepper.

Bowl Assembly

  • Stir in crumbled sausage bits into wild rice. Taste and season if necessary.
  • Put about 1 cup rice mixture into each bowl. Top the rice with kale, mushrooms, and a fried egg.


Note: Feel free to use whatever mushrooms you prefer. We love mushrooms and tend to try various ones as often as possible with the Maitakes being one of our favorites.
