This is my new favorite recipe. It is crave-able and I've made it multiple times in the last month or so.


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups kale (I used a Sweet Kale Salad Vegetable Salad Kit)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Real Salt *
  • 1/4 tsp Real Salt Seasoning Salt
  • 1 cup rice, cooked (I used sweet brown rice)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese, plus more for garnish


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat until it is warmed up.
  2. Add the butter and cook until it is melted and slightly brown.
  3. Add the kale, oil, and seasonings then cook until the kale is cooked through and slightly brown.
  4. Add the rice and cheese and stir until the cheese is melted and the rice is evenly disbursed.
  5. Sprinkle with extra cheese and adjust the seasonings as necessary.


  • You may use ghee * instead of butter but it won't brown. I sometimes use only the oil and it is almost as good.
  • Sweet brown rice is my favorite in this recipe because it is a little sticky and chewy. It can be hard to find though. My next favorite is short brown rice but even your favorite white rice will work.
