Kale-in it Risotto

Mushroom and Kale Risotto

Day five‘s dehydrated dinner. Thought about making a cream of mushroom soup or something, but it just didn’t seem to have enough sustenance. Add some rice…. and it ended up being a recipe for risotto instead! One bag of skim milk powder went a long way this journey, adding protein to oatmeal, pasta and now risotto.
