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

    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.
