Swiss chard, kale and brown rice (Greek style) is a delightful way to prepare a vegan meal and take advantage of some of the fresh greens that become available in late spring. We prepare this recipe in our wok, because a wok makes it easier to cook the large volume of greens. This recipe makes enough to serve 6 to 8 adults, and leftovers can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for several days. We just warm the leftover servings in our microwave oven, and they are as good or better than when we first cooked them.

Place the rice pot with water on the stovetop and bring to a boil.

While the rice water is heating, clean and peel the onions and carrots, and dice the onions and thinly slice the carrots into the wok. Add the dried herbs and optional hot pepper, and stir-fry with a little water until the onions just begin to become translucent. Turn off the heat.

When the water in the rice pot begins to boil, add the rice, cover, reduce the heat to simmer, and cook until all the water is absorbed into the rice.

While the rice is cooking, wash, clean, and coarsely dice the chard and kale and place in the wok. Stir-fry until the greens become tender, and then thoroughly mix in the cooked rice.

Serve and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
