Kale Lentil Rice Bowl

I have discovered that I am not a master chef who enjoys creating masterpieces. I do however love to cook myself yummy, healthy food. I'm coming to the conclusion that since I will never be an amazing recipe blogger, this section will serve more as a template to view how I think about ingredients and food preparation for the meals that I eat. Pretty much all of these recipes can be modified to suit personal taste buds. They are merely templates. This is no exception.

Bowls are a pretty big rage these days. Which is funny because it's basically about presentation. Whether in a bowl or on a plate, the basic concepts of combining a grain, vegetable, protein and healthy fat is fantastic. Here's one of mine.


1/2 cup Black Rice

1/2 bunch of Kale

1/4 cup Lentils

1/4 cup frozen Corn

1/2 Avocado

Salt, Pepper


Prepare rice as directed. Personally, I like using a dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with my rice.

While rice is cooking, cook lentils as directed.

When rice is half done, de-stem kale leaves and steam them.

When lentils are about done, toss in frozen corn to cook for the final few minutes.

When everything is cooked (hopefully ending approximately the same time): toss rice, lentils, corn, and kale together. Salt and Pepper to taste. Top with sliced avocado. Voilร !!
