Simply Delish Summer Dinner!

It's summer. It's hot. It's busy. It's...all sorts of things.

Here's a quickie we whipped up for dinner, we were SO tired from a relaxing beach day--we just wanted to eat! (cue violins)

...in other news, I have a wicked sunburn--USE SUNSCREEN!

"It's HOT and We're Tired" KALE, COCONUT RICE & Protein-of-Choice Dinner

you need this:

2 cups pre-cooked brown rice (did you read my post about lessons learned from cooking Brown Rice?)
2 Tablespoons coconut Manna or 1/4 cup canned coconut milk

2 tsp dried shredded coconut

several big fresh raw Kale leaves
1 tsp olive oil or butter for sautee

protein of choice (we used 1 pound of fresh salmon from Whole Foods--but would baked chicken or satueed tofu work? For shizzle)

do this:
1) tear the kale leaves away from the stem

2) wash in cool water and tear into small pieces

3) place the kale pieces into a skillet with some oil/butter

4) sautee until crispy and/or wilted (however you like your kale) and set aside

5) in a 2 or 3 qt. pot toss in your brown rice and a splash of water, warm and stir in the coconut Manna or milk and let that warm together. Add a pinch of sea salt.
6) prepare your Protein of Choice as you wish. We baked the salmon in a large flat casserole dish with some butter.

Add all ingredients to your plate, season with salt, some light soy sauce--or nothing at all added--whatever strikes your fancy.
