Buttery Rice w/ Greens

Posted by on Jul 18, 2013 | Comments Off on Buttery Rice w/ Greens


For the Rice:
1 cup dry basmati rice (or your favorite / whatever you have on hand)
1 & 1/2 cups water (or appropriate amount depending on type of rice used)
1 TBSP butter, ghee, or coconut oil
1/2 tsp pure salt

  • Combine rice, water, ghee and salt in a small pot and bring to a boil.
  • Stir once to dislodge any rice stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook for the appropriate amount of time depending on the type of rice used.

For the Greens:
1 TBSP butter, ghee, or coconut oil
2 – 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
6 oz greens washed and roughly chopped
pure salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • While rice is cooking, prep greens (or grab a bag of your pre-washed & chopped greens).
  • Melt ghee in saute pan and cook garlic for 2 mins until just beginning to color.
  • Add greens, sprinkle in some salt and pepper, and cook until done to your liking.
  • When rice is cooked, add it to the pan with greens and toss to combine.

Serves 3 – 4 as a side dish.



~  A side of rice on its own and a side of greens on its own is not nearly as exciting as mixing them together.

~  This time, I used beet greens (shown below).
