Kale Tomato brown rice bath

Kale Tomato brown rice final


This hearty one-skillet dinner is loaded with kale, tomatoes and quick-cooking brown rice

Here the brown rice sauted in tomato puree, kale and aromatic spices. I am always on the lookout for new recipes that incorporate the vitamin-packed green, and stumbled upon this recipe for kale fried rice.

Health Benefits:

Kale improves blood glucose control in diabetics, lowering the risk of cancer, lowering blood pressure, improving bone health, lowering the risk of developing asthma and more.
