Healthy recipe excerpted from the book Peas & Love by Catherine Kluger.
PREPARATION : 30 MINUTES
COOKING : 45 MINUTES
Ideally, I soak the brown rice in water for one day, which makes me save 15 minutes of cooking time.
If I am not able to soak it, I rinse it carefully before cooking it for 40 minutes in salty boiling water.
I drain and rinse the red beans, I mix them with the cooked rice and the chilli spices or the smoked paprika.
I rinse the kale leaves before removing the central stem and mince them finely. I blanch them for 1 minute in salty boiling water before draining them and dipping them in very cold water.
For the guacamole, I crush the flesh of the pitted avocados with a fork, and add the other ingredients.
For the sour cream, I mix all the ingredients.
I cut my chicken breasts into strips that I roll in the smoked paprika. If I use poached eggs, I also cover them with paprika.
I prepare individual portions by garnishing the bottom of four bowls with the mix of rice and red beans and, on top, I place the drained kale cabbage, the chicken or egg, the guacamole, the red cabbage, the sour cream. I finish by sprinkling with Cajun nuts.
