Fried Brown Rice With Kale and Scallions

This dish (recipe here) is just one version of what might be my favorite meal in the world - brown rice with veggies, sauce, and garnish.

The sauce can be anything - tahini, umeboshi vinegar, miso, soy sauce, even barbecue sauce.

The garnish can be sesame seeds, nuts, and/or herbs.

The veggies can be practically anything you can think of.

This particular version is brown rice, lightly fried with chopped kale, garlic, and scallions.  It is drizzled with soy sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds.  It came from Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, My Father's Daughter.  Her kids call it "green rice" and apparently gobble it up.

That's because it's delicious.  Perfection in a bowl, if you ask me.  Proof that food can, and should be, healthy and addictive.
