Greens with carrots, feta cheese

Copyright © 2011. Adrien Bisson.

never had kale before, I hadn’t a clue what to do with it. Over time I’ve discovered I actually like it — and how nutritious and inexpensive it is. This recipe is no exception; it’s quick and delicious. Only use the frozen rice if you’re pushed for time.

Ingredients

2 carrots shredded
2 bunches dark leafy greens, stems removed and leaves very thinly sliced (her’s where I used kale)
1/2 red onion
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 pound feta cheese, crumbled
1 (20-oz) package Whole Foods frozen whole grain brown rice (here’s where I use dry rice and cook it myself — the frozen is a timesaver)

Method

1. 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.

2. Toss with feta cheese and spoon over cooked brown rice.

Serves 4. Weight Watcher Points = 8.
