Brown or white rice both work well here. If I have time I use brown rice, otherwise I go with Uncle Ben’s converted rice. Kale has many antioxidants as well as calcium and vitamin K for bones. - Jenny Jones

- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 4 cups Dino kale (4 oz.) ribs removed, cut in small strips
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 3/4 cup long grain rice (see note below for brown rice)
- 1 1/2 cups water, chicken or vegetable stock
