Kale Rice Bowl Recipe

I shared one of our family favorites, Heidi Swanson’s Sushi Rice Bowl, a little while back. This Kale Rice Bowl, also from her wonderful recipe journal 101 Cookbooks, is a great alternative, and every bit as yummy. XXJKE

Kale Rice Bowl Recipe

  • Units:
  • Course: Sides, Mains


  • olive oil or clarified butter
  • 1 bunch kale destemmed, chopped/shredded
  • 3 cup 710 ml rice brown, cooked

Ingredients for the To Serve

  • capers rinsed, dried, and pan-fried until blistered in butter
  • 1 egg poached
  • 1 dollop yogurt Greek, salted
  • 1 drizzle olive oil good extra virgin
  • lots za'atar
  • sesame seeds toasted

In a large skillet or pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the kale and a couple pinches of salt. Saute until the kale softens a bit and brightens, just a minute or so. Stir in the rice, and cook until the rice is hot. If your rice is on the dry side, you might have to add a small splash of water.

Serve the kale rice topped with (preferably) all of the following: the capers, poached egg, yogurt drizzled with olive oil, and plenty of za'atar.
