Day 2

Fried Kale and Rice Dish (Serves 4)

It was my wife who first discovered this dish whilst browsing through a recipe book in a charity shop written by Gwyneth Paltrow. My opinion of Ms Paltrow? Seven - Yes; Sliding Doors - No. 

Anyway this has become a staple in our home and is loved by all, especially my 11 year old son who eats great spoonfuls of it in one go. We eat it with either sausages, falafels (if we're feeling especially cosmopolitan) or poached eggs.


200g kale (finely chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
3 large spring onions (chopped)
175g of brown rice (cooked)
3-4 tbsp. of soy sauce


1. Steam the kale for 6-7 minutes

2. Heat a little vegetable oil to a large frying pan or wok

3. On a low heat add the chopped garlic and fry briefly.

4. Turn up the heat a bit and add the spring onions and kale and fry for a couple of minutes

5. Add the rice and fry for a couple of minutes. Keep stirring at this point to prevent sticking.

6. Add the soy sauce and stir until the sauce is evenly distributed (about 30 seconds to one minute).
