Orange Kale and Wild Rice

We have had the most beautiful Kale in our winter garden this year and it is so nice to just go out to the garden and bring it into the kitchen and enjoy the fresh Kale. We have really enjoyed our Kale this winter in salads, smoothies and it is a great addition to rice and pasta.  Today I am making a recipe featuring the Kale with Wild Rice and Orange, I just love that blend of flavors in this dish.

  1. I bet this is a very flavorful dish! Even better with veggies from the garden:@)

  2. Wow, fresh kale from your garden... so wonderful. Thanks for sharing this healthy dish with us on foodie friday.

  3. This sounds delicious! I wonder how it would be with quinoa instead of rice? And how easy is it to grow kale in your garden?

    1. Hi Linda,
      I think the recipe would be great with Quinoa, I would just add the orange juice to the Kale and let it reduce just a bit before mixing it with the Quinoa. The Quinoa won't absorb the liquid the way the rice will, but it would taste great.

      It is really easy to grow Kale. We grow it as a winter vegetable and it just thrives. I sometimes plant it in the flower beds, it is real pretty all winter. We plant it in the fall and have it all winter into the late spring. We will replant in the spring, but then it doesn't do well in the heat that we have in July and August.

  4. I have some Kale that I need to use up and I think this would be the perfect way to do so. This recipe looks divine, Miz Helen. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday and have a great week!

  5. I have been looking for more ways to eat kale (besides blended up in a smoothie). I think I will try this. Thanks for sharing,

  9. Miz Helen, I really like kale, and the addition of orange and wild rice sounds delicious! I think I could make an entire meal of this, and I love the pretty colors. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- PINNED! :)

  10. What a lovely way to serve wild rice, Miz Helen! The orange would give such a lovely flavour and I'm always looking for new ways to use kale. This is a really wholesome recipe. I've pinned it :-) Thank you for sharing your Orange Kale and Wild Rice with the Hearth and Soul hop.
