Green Rice

Submitted by: CPTLISA1971


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    *Brown Rice, long grain, 2 cup
    kale, raw, 2.5 cup
    Broccoli, fresh, 1 cup, chopped
    Onions, raw, .5 cup, chopped
    Garlic, 6 cloves
    Green Peppers (bell peppers), 0.5 cup, chopped
    Olive Oil, .25 cup
    Cider Vinegar, .33 cup
    *Green Chiles (Whole), 3 oz

Tips

I used a 4 oz can of chopped green chiles, you can do that or use fresh. You can also adjust the garlic to where you like. I love garlic and it mellows with cooking so I but 6-8 cloves in, crushed and lightly chopped. I also used a bunch of green onions, use whatever onions you like. This will work with about any combo of cooked greens and other green veggies. I am trying to make friends with kale and this recipe turned out VERY tasty!


Directions

Precook the rice; I used a rice cooker. I use a skillet-wok for these type of dishes.

Cook pepper and onions first, get them to start to soften.

Add kale, crushed garlic cloves, broccoli and toss.

Add seasonings. I use Mrs Dash blends for a lot of my seasoning bases. A key ingredient for this one was celery seed!

Add apple cider vinegar.

Add canned chilies; if using fresh put them in with the onions and bell peppers.

Mix with rice. Add more vinegar and a little more oil if needed to keep it flavorful and not too dry. This should turn out more like a rice veggie salad that can be served warm or chilled, and should work with other grains as well.
