spicy peanut mushroom kale rice bowl


If your weekend looked anything like mine (pizza, Chinese takeout, Tex-Mex... yeesh), this might be the perfect dinner for you tonight!

I've had this recipe pinned forever, and finally decided to try it last week. Holy smokes. This is SO good! We devoured this for dinner, and I ate the leftovers for breakfast and lunch the next day. And then I got really sad that I didn't have it for dinner all over again.

This will definitely be going into the regular rotation in our home, and I hope it will find it way into yours too!

*note: I made the kale salad component of this meal a day ahead of time to allow to flavors to absorb and the kale to soften a bit. Since I followed the recipe for the salad and dressing exactly, I've included the link for you to follow.

Spicy Peanut Mushroom Kale Rice Bowl (slightly adapted from Healthy Happy Life)
serves 4

you'll need:
4 cups cooked brown rice
4 cups Spicy Peanut Ginger Kale Salad
1 lb. mushrooms, sliced (I used cremini - use what you like!)
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
for garnish: toasted sesame seeds (I used black and white for color!), chopped scallions

Prepare the kale salad according to the recipe above. As I mentioned, I did this a day ahead of time, but this isn't necessary.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms, onions, and a bit of salt and pepper. Saute until tender. Once the mushrooms have cooked down and the onion is translucent, add soy sauce. Add about 1 cup of the kale salad to the skillet and toss gently. Remove from heat and let sit.

To serve, top brown rice with a bit of kale salad, then the kale mushroom skillet mixture. Garnish with chopped peanuts, sesame seeds, and scallions. Grab a fork, and enjoy!

  13. This looks delicious Marie! I love a cleansing meal like this after a big weekend. The contrast between the black sesame and the creamy brown rice and mushrooms is divine. I'd add a bit of crisped tofu on the top for a perfect meal! Mmmm! xxx
