Mixing kale with hearty brown rice makes for a fantastic side dish full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Leftover brown rice takes on a whole new life when heated with a bit of richly flavored butter and gently massaged kale. Taking the time to massage the kale helps to break down cell walls in the kale and results in gorgeously glistening dark green kale leaves that are both easier to chew and less bitter than their raw counterparts. If you don’t have any precooked brown rice, cook ¾ cup of raw brown rice in 2 cups of chicken or veggie broth for 50 minutes, covered. That should do the trick.
