  • Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high until shimmering. Add maitake and shiitake mushrooms and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and crispy, 8–10 minutes. Season with salt and transfer to a plate.
  • Meanwhile, purée beans, lime juice, 3 Tbsp. oil, 1 garlic clove (if it’s a large one, you may want to just use half), and 3 Tbsp. water in a blender until smooth, adding more water by the tablespoonful as needed to loosen if it doesn’t want to cooperate in blender. Season with salt.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in same skillet over medium-high. Add scallions and remaining garlic clove and cook, tossing, until just beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Add kale and cook, tossing often, until wilted and crisp-tender, 3–5 minutes. Season with salt. Transfer to plate with mushrooms.
  • Divide bean purée between bowls. Top with greens, feta, mushrooms, sesame seeds, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
