Carrot & Kale Rice Pilaf – 3 WW Points/5WW+ Points

Posted on: February 8, 2013


Dinner always seems to sneak up on me. I had a pork roast in the crockpot cooking all day, but I needed a quick side. I usually make brown rice in the rice cooker every day or so just to have it on hand. Well, I didn’t today so I had to come up with something.


I love the taste of Rice-a-Roni (can you say that without hearing a ‘ding ding’ in your head??) but I don’t buy boxed food. Anyway, here’s the recipe:

Carrot & Kale Pilaf

Browning the rice is very important to the flavor of the dish.

Makes 6 servings

  • 1 1/2 C brown rice
  • 3 C broth (I used water + better than bouillon)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 sweet onion, minced
  • 1/2 C kale, chopped
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1 T onion powder
  • salt to taste

Heat the oil over medium high heat in a medium sauce pan. Add onion and carrot, stir until almost brown. Add rice and stir until brown. Stir in the remaining ingredients, lower heat to medium, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and serve. 

Makes six 1/2 cup servings.
