Asian Inspired Portobello Mushrooms and Kale

Some pretty interesting, and delicious, dishes come when I can’t make up my mind. I wanted stir fry but I didn’t want stir fry, wanted mushrooms, and didn’t want rice or noodles. These Asian Inspired Portobello Mushrooms and Kale make a quick lunch or weeknight dinner.
