Brown Rice w/Kale (P, TNT)
Source: Adapted from Veggie Life
Serves: 2 as main course, 4 as a side

2 cups water
1 cup raw brown rice
1 tablespoon dehydrated onion
2 tablespoons dehydrated mushrooms, crumbled
2 tablespoons dried tomatoes (not in oil), chopped up
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pound fresh kale, cleaned and chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium if preferred)
1/2 to 3/4 cup vegetable stock

Combine water, rice, dehydrated onion, mushrooms, and tomatoes, and prepare according to directions for the rice you are using.

While rice is simmering, heat oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Sauté onions for one minute, then add garlic and sauté for one minute more.

Add kale in batches, stirring to be sure it's all combined with the onion and garlic. When all the kale has been added (and it's down to below the rim of the saucepan), add soy sauce and 1/2 cup stock, stir to combine well, and cover. Let simmer 5 minutes, then check to see if additional stock is needed. Stir and let simmer an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until kale is limp but still lively.

To serve, place rice mixture on plate and top with kale mixture. Pour any remaining sauce over it all.

Poster's Notes:
This is an adaptation of a recipe from Veggie Life. I didn't have the exact ingredients on hand so I made it this way and will definitely make it this way again.
