Hot ‘n’ Sour Kale Stir-Fry

Based on a favorite Hot n’ Sour Soup from a Seattle restaurant, we skip the soup and add more vegetables…in this case, kale. This cozy, comfort-food version of stir-fry combines hot, savory, sweet and sour with lots of texture.

Hint: Quick-cook some rice this morning. You’ll have healthy brown rice all ready when you get home!

This is as easy as 1…2…3

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Serves: makes about 2.5 Cups


1 C. brown rice
2-1/4 C. water

  1. While you’re making coffee in the morning, measure 1 C. brown rice and 2-1/4 C. water into a medium saucepan and place on the burner. 
  2. Bring it to a hard boil.
  3. Turn off burner, cover and leave sitting on the burner as it cools for the day. 

When you arrive home tonight, you will have ready-to-eat, perfectly-cooked rice.  Just rewarm it in the microwave before you serve the meal. 

Important!  Do not cook the rice in this manner using chicken broth, as it would not be safe to leave chicken broth unrefrigerated for the day.
