INGREDIENTS

MARINATED KALE:

  • 7 cups kale sliced leaves , tightly packed (1cm / 2/5″ slices) (Note 1)
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

GARLIC BUTTER RICE:

  • 2 tbsp (30g) unsalted butter
  • 3 – 4 large garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice (Note 2)
  • 2 1/4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable)

FINISHING:

  • 1 – 2 tbsp (15 – 30g) butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds (or other nuts / seeds of choice)

 

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Place kale in a large bowl. Drizzle over oil, sprinkle with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Scrunch with hands for 30 seconds, set aside while rice cooks.
  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute until just starting to turn golden and is incredibly fragrant.
  • Add rice, stir for 10 seconds.
  • Add broth, stir, then cover.
  • Turn heat down to medium or medium low so the liquid is simmering very gently. Cook for 12 – 15 minutes until all liquid is absorbed (tilt pot to check).
  • Quickly toss all the kale on top of the rice, put the lid back on then remove from heat.
  • Rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Fluff rice with fork, stirring kale through.
  • Lastly, stir through extra butter and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve and sprinkle over nuts (or stir nuts through rice).
