Cheesy Rice and Kale

Posted in: Kale


  • 1/2 Yellow Onion or 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Cup rice
  • 1 Bunch of Kale, stem removed and coarsely chopped
  • Butter or Olive Oil
  • Grated Sharp Cheddar or Swiss
  • Toasted sesame seeds to garnish


Heat a deep skillet and add butter or olive oil. Sautee Garlic and Onion/scallion until soft. Add 1 Cup rice and 2 Cups Water to the skillet, cover, bring to a boil, and then turn down to simmer for 20 minutes (Adjust accordingly for brown rice, you’ll want another 10 minutes of cook time for the kale) Add Chopped Kale on top of the rice, cover and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Turn off the burner, add grated cheese (we like sharp cheddar or swiss) to cover, and replace the cover until the cheese melts. Serve with sesame seeds to sprinkle on top.
