Rice, Kale, Yam and Shrimp Bowl
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add rice. Reduce heat to low and keep lid slightly ajar. Watch for overflowing!
  2. While the rice is cooking, place a half cup of water and peeled yams into a sauté pan. Over medium heat, bring to a boil and allow the yams to cook till water is absorbed - at least 5-7 minutes. May need to add a little more water if yams are still too firm. When to the right tenderness remove from pan.
  3. In the same pan, melt 1 tablespoon of Original Ghee, add the fennel seeds and cook for one minute. Toss in the shallot and allow to cook for about 2 minutes or till translucent.
  4. Add chopped kale and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Adding a couple splashes of water helps it to cook faster. Remove from pan.
  5. In the same pan, add a small amount of Original Ghee and allow to melt. Add garlic, lemon, and shrimp. Sprinkle shrimp with sweet paprika and dill. Saute for about 2 minutes on each side. Shrimp cook very fast so once they are lightly pink they are done. They will continue to cook after you remove them from the heat.
  6. Once the rice is done, add the Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee, salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Add the yams and kale to the pan of rice and mix all together. Adjust seasonings and place in bowls. Top off with shrimp and serve.
  8. Serves 2 generously as a meal.

Recipe Notes

*To make homemade chicken broth: Place washed chicken into pot and barely cover with water. Add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and allow the chicken to soak for 1 hour. Turn on heat and bring to a boil. Once it boils, begin skimming all the white foam off – these are the impurities. Once it’s clean, reduce heat to low-medium and add any amount of onion, carrots, and celery along with bay leaf and any fresh herbs you like. Put lid on pot half-way and allow the whole chicken and all the goodies to cook for about 2-3 hours. Check the chicken after 2 hours to see if its done. The internal temp is 165 F  without the thermometer touching any bones).  Once chicken is done, remove it from the pot and allow to cool slightly. Remove the chicken from the bones.  If you like, you can toss the bones back into the pot for the last hour of cooking.  Cut or shred both white and dark meat for the soup. Save the rest for other meals. After 3 hours, strain the broth to remove all the veggies and herbs – toss them. Allow the broth to cool if you plan on freezing it or you may continue to make the soup at this point. Be careful - it is HOT!

Can also use Black Garlic Ghee, Sriracha Ghee, Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee and Heirloom Salt + Pepper Ghee in place of Original Ghee.
