I must have read this somewhere. For me this is the most basic meal because, I’m sure you know, you ought to eat some dark leafy greens and a grain and a legume makes a complete protein, so main meals should have at least these three ingredients.
Today it’s cold and raining and I don’t want to go to the grocery or spend lots of time prepping for this week’s lunches. I saw this basic recipe on Food 52 and I happened to have everything I needed to make it in the house. Bonus, turns out it’s delicious.
I sautéed some rosemary and red pepper flakes in olive oil then added 3 cloves of smashed garlic for a few seconds. Then I packed in the kale. I added some vegetable broth once it stated to wilt. Turned the heat to low and added some salt and pepper and a can of well-rinsed cannellini beans.
While that simmered I made some starch-resistant brown rice. What’s that? Read this. I stored the soup and the rice in separate containers so each morning all I need to do is scoop some for each container into a Tupperware dish and carry it to work. You could probably add a splash of apple cider vinegar with all those greens too.
