  • Chilli flakes (optional)

Method:

  1. Cook the brown rice according to instructions, set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onions, stirring until soft and translucent (4-5 minutes). Add garlic and sauté for a further 2-3 minutes. Add the kale and stir until wilted.
