Here's How To Make Kale and Mozzarella Stuffed Mushrooms:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Clean your mushroom caps with a damp paper towel. Remove the stems from the caps, dice the stems, and set aside. Set aside the mushroom caps, and sprinkle them with salt. 
Mince a shallot. Clean your kale, remove the stems and cut the kale into bite sized pieces. In a skillet, melt 2 tbsp (half) of your butter, then add in the kale and saute for a few minutes until soft, add a pinch of salt,  then set aside.  
After you’ve set aside the kale, add the rest of the butter to the skillet. Add in your minced mushroom stems and shallot. Add a pinch of salt. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes.  
Add your cooked kale back in to the skillet. Then add in your paprika, garlic powder and pepper. 
Add your mozzarella and most of the parmesan cheese to the skillet. Reserve a small amount of both cheeses for topping the mushrooms before they go into the oven. Cook down the cheese, kale, shallot and mushroom mixture until soft, about 5 minutes, then remove from the skillet. 
Next, add your mushroom caps to the skillet, and using a spoon, stuff the mushroom caps full of the mixture. 
Fill every cap with the mixture.   
Sprinkle the stuffed mushrooms with the remaining cheese. 
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown. 
Now, just serve and enjoy!
