Greens with Carrots, Feta Cheese and Brown Rice



I am still going strong with Vegetarian week! I haven't had a bit of chicken, fish, turkey, shrimp, beef, pork, or the like since last Saturday. It's a little more challenging than I thought! I am missing the seafood for sure, especially out here in Seattle. But, I've been finding some great new recipes that I normally wouldn't have tried! Like this one:

Greens with Carrots, Feta Cheese and Brown Rice
serves 2 with leftovers!

2 carrots, shredded
1 bunch kale, tough stems removed, leaves very thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 T feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup organic long grain brown rice, cooked according to package directions

Put carrots, greens, onions, 1/4 cup water, salt and pepper into a large, deep skillet and toss well. Cover and cook over medium heat, tossing once or twice, until greens are wilted and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Toss with feta cheese and spoon over brown rice.

Even Keith liked this! It was super healthy and I felt good just eating it! Another great way to cook kale :)
