I wanted to incorporate kale into my diet. The nutrients http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2461/2.
The next new addition to my food choice this year is brown rice. If you have left over bowl of rice or frozen rice, it is perfect for this dish.
You can also substitute the rice with noodles. Udon or ramen noodles.
As vegetables, I have Kale, mushrooms, green onions, onions. Eggs as a source of protein and egg and rice go well.
I will also use just one cooking pan for everything, cooking in batches. You can make either of the batch before or after, but do make the eggs last as they don’t need much heat.
I like using spices on the rice and will use paprika power ( chilli powder), tumeric and cumin.
For Brown Rice
- 1 cup brown rice ( leftover rice, frozen or fresh cooked rice)
- Chilli powder
- Tumeric Powder
- Cumin powder
- Onions chopped
For kale and mushroom
- Chopped Kale
- Sliced Mushroom
- Chopped Onions
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 large eggs
- Salt and Pepper
- green onions
- Heat pan and add in olive oil. Add in the chopped onions (spare some for the rice, a small quantity) and let it start to brown at the edges. Add in the chopped mushroom and stir. The liquid from the mushroom be used for Kale cooking. Add in the kale, and stir it every few minutes for about 5 minutes. If it does not look raw, it is done.
Pour out this into a serving dish.
- Add in some olive oil and chopped onions. Let it brown at the edges. Add in a 1/8 tsp of tumeric 4 *1/8 tsp paprika powder and 2 *1/8 tsp cumin power and stir. Add in the rice and stir well. Add salt to season the rice and a squeeze of lemon juice. You can also add couple of tsp of soy sauce for a different flavor.
Pour the rice on top of the Kale Mushroom.
- Add in couple of tsp of olive oil and add in the eggs. Eggs are cooked on low heat so, you can shut down the heat at this stage if you have a electric stove or reduce the heat to low. Add salt and pepper to season and chopped green onions. Let the eggs cook in the low heat for a bit and it should be done.
Mix the three parts of the cooking cycle together. You can mix all of them together or serve then in three parts like shown in the rice.
The total time to cook is around 15-20 minutes and would server 2 people.
