Brazilian inspired vegan meal. Simple and delicious!
I had a bunch of leftover Kale and decided to add it to a recipe I make quite often. Rice and beans are a traditional Latino dish originating in Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Spain. Although simple this dish is very filling and nutritious.

The combination of Rice, Beans and Kale provides Iron, Protein, and Vitamin B, beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and calcium.

This meal is PERFECT for Vegans and Vegetarians.
