kale-and-brown-rice-casserole

You know how much I love casseroles. It’s mostly because I value my time and don’t want to spend all of it in the kitchen. Oh, and I want to feed my family healthy foods. Kale is rich in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, such as iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium, among other healthy nutrients.

It’s a shame that most kids hate kale, though. And frankly,  most husbands do, too. So, we can be creative and hide it in yummy dishes! I have just the recipe for you. It is inspired by this, less healthy version. Make sure to shred kale very thinly. The whole project takes 20 minutes, if you have some precooked millet.  Millet is chewy, despite being soft, but I have also tried making this dish with quinoa and it turned out heavenly, so be creative.
