My in-laws being in Wisconsin often send us bags of wild rice, technically not a rice, but still yummy. If you haven't ever had it, it is longer than regular rice and has a slightly tea like flavor with a lot of chew. Definitely good with mushy winter stew like things. I decided to use the bag in a crock-pot meal with some kale and other vegetables from our winter CSA. It was very satisfying, but not very colorful.
|kale, rice, oil, garlic, onion, random crisper vegetables, wine, salt, and pepper|
|separate your kale leaves from the stems|
|add chopped leaves and chopped vegetable to a pre-heated crockpot|
|saute chopped onion and chopped kale stems in oil|
|add white wine leftover from a party and a bay leaf and let cook a little|
|then add onion/kale stem mix, salt, and pepper|
|once it has cooked down enough stir in the rice|
|let cook all day, rice will pop when it is done|
And yes I forgot to take a picture of the actual food served. I know, I know.
