B CHEEZY KALE WILD RICE

By Sara Galipeau of @sara_rhn_loveplants

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Floating Leaf wild rice blend
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 1 veggie bouillon cube
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • a liberal sprinkling turmeric (~1/2 tsp.)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen chopped kale
  • 1 cup chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3-4 leaves fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

 

Directions:

Prepare rice, adding the bouillon, paprika, and turmeric to the water at the start.

Package instructions indicate cook rice sealed (covered) for 25min; instead, after 15min, open pot to add the rest of the ingredients as follows:

Stir in kale to wilt/thaw.

About 1min later, stir in chickpeas, basil, and coconut oil.

Once coconut oil is melted and mixed through, stir in nutritional yeast.

Allow to warm through another 3-4min and serve. Makes 2-3 meal-size servings or 4-5 sides. Top with more fresh basil, chopped walnuts, or vegan cheese shreds as desired.
