Brown Rice & Kale Bowl

This is pretty much a staple lunch in my house, sometimes I swap the ingredients around a bit depending what’s in the fridge/pantry.  The kids love it, minus the green bits of course, but I try and sneak them in sometimes.  If you cook the kale first it shrinks a bit and doesn’t look so obvious. I also love to add avocado.  And instead of brown rice you can use quinoa or couscous, whatever takes your fancy, or is readily available!

Brown Rice & Kale Bowl

Serves 1

  • 1/4 cup uncooked rice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp bouillon (or dry vegetable or chicken stock)
  • 1 kale leaf
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 25g feta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 egg
  • parsley to garnish

Bring water to boil and add brown rice and bouillon.  Simmer for 30 – 45 mins, adding more water if you need to.  Keep cooking until rice is cooked and water is evaporated.  Take off the stove, add the kale and mix around.  Tip rice/kale mix into bowl and add the corn, feta and pumpkin seeds, give it a good mix.  Bing shallow pan water to the boil and break an egg into it, turn to simmer and cook until poached to your preference.  Place cooked egg on top of rice mix and sprinkle with chia seeds.  Garnish with parsley.
