“I invented it (and am not a cook!) It’s easy, tasty, healthy, and low calorie.”


  • 6-7 oz extra firm tofu 1-16 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chile
  • 1 cup water ¾ medium onion, chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large bunch kale, leaves torn salt and lemon juice (to taste)

Place tofu, onion, garlic, water, and tomatoes with chile in a large sauce pan. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Add mushrooms and kale. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes, careful not to overcook. Use a large spoon to mix ingredients in pan as kale shrinks. Note: At first it will make a large amount of “greenery” that you must carefully cover with pan liquid so none of the kale falls out of pan!

Optional: For a heartier dish, add ¼ cup kidney beans. For a spicier dish, season with more green chile or chili powder to taste.
