Sorrel is a wonderful addition and gives this simple rice dish a zesty, vibrant kick!

Recipe type: Main

Serves: 2


Ingredients

2 cups cooked short-grain brown rice

1 cup sorrel leaves

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 fresh squeezed lemons (approximately ¼ cup lemon juice)

1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon dried dill (or ½ tablespoon of fresh)

½ teaspoon salt

fresh ground black pepper to taste

1 small bunch organic kale, ribs removed and chopped

Zest of one lemon

2 red radishes, sliced thin for garnish

Lemon wedges for garnish

hot sauce (optional)


Instructions

Cook short-grain rice according to directions. Keep warm.

Place the sorrel leaves, chopped garlic, fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, dill, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Process or blend until smooth. If it is too thick, add more liquid.

Place the chopped kale in a steamer basket. Bring 3 inches of water to boil in a large pot then carefully place the steamer basket into pot. Cover and cook for approximately 3 minutes or until the kale is just wilted. Season with a little salt and pepper. Keep warm.

In a medium bowl, toss the rice with the sorrel mixture. Place half the rice mixture in a serving bowl. Top with kale and radishes. Sprinkle with lemon zest. Serve with lemon wedges. This also tastes delicious with a fermented hot sauce.

Optional accompaniments could include: hemp seeds, nuts or additional vegetable
