Brown Rice and Greens

Rice and Greens

This sounds like a really dull healthy dish. And though it is healthy but it’s definitely not dull. It packs a mean punch.

I make it to use up things in the vegetable/salad draw, or when there really isn’t much in the fridge as you can use a lot of freezer ingredients. I prefer to use brown rice as I like the nutty taste I think it tastes like it has been fried.
