Rice with Kale

Rice with Kale

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

    Tried this last night, delicious, thanks for sharing. I didn’t have an onion so I substituted 2 Celery stalks & also added 4 Portabella Mushroom caps chopped up. It made it really hardy & gave it a risotto type consistency. I’ll make this again. It would be really helpful if you could include the nutrition information.
    Thanks,

    This dish was very flavorful. It had a cozy warm goodness feeling eating this. I made it alone as a main dish. My family loved it.
