Hmmm…seems like I’m not the only one who hates the dentist and wants to keep their house clean with less work!
I really loved recapping my resolutions here on the blog. It really helps me focus on my motives, and ultimately makes it more likely for me to reach my goals! And this past Tuesday, I accomplished #1: Try a new vegetable recipe once a week
Kale Fried Rice with Crunchy Bacon Bits!
Wholesome, Healthy, and completely DELICIOUS!! Also gluten free, obvi
A big ol’ bunch of kale
2 cups cooked brown rice
1-2 tbsp. gluten free tamari
2 cloves garlic- minced
3-4 pieces of bacon (Applegate Farms Sunday Bacon is ahh-mazing!)
Start by cutting your kale from the stem. Just drag your knife along both sides of the stem, so you have the leaf without the stem. (Discard the stem) Then chop your kale leaves into small bite-size bits. Steam the kale for 10 minutes. While the kale is steaming, cook your bacon and reserve the grease.
In the reserved bacon grease, start cooking your garlic for two minutes. Shake out excess liquid from the steamed kale and then add it into your garlic and bacon grease. Cook for four minutes, and then add in your rice. Give it a good stir to incorporate and add in 1-2 tbsp. tamari. I like 2 tbsp. but I also have strong taste buds!
Serve with crumbled bacon!
Don’t do bacon? Just cook the garlic in 3 tbsp. olive oil!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this dish because of the huge amount of kale. I love kale chips, but I’m not big on raw kale. Turns out, steamed kale is tasty!
What’s your experience? Kale: yay or nay? And if nay: have you tried it steamed?
Tomorrow, a new feature on Gluten Hates Me: Fitness Fridays!
