Rice, Kale, Yam and Shrimp Bowl

Rice, Kale, Yam and Shrimp Bowl

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup Basamati or Jasmine rice
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2 small organic yams or sweet potatoes - peeled and cut in 1" pieces
  • 1 small Bunch Kale - chopped like confetti - small
  • 1 shallot - diced
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 6-8 large shrimp - remove shells and clean
  • 1 Teas. fennel seeds
  • 1 Teas. smoked paprika
  • 1 Teas. dried dill
  • juice of 1 lemon - grate a little of the zest too
  • 1 Tbsp. Original Ghee
  • 1 Tbsp. Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee
  • good salt and cracked pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add chopped kale and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Adding a couple splashes of water helps it to cook faster. Remove from pan.
  • 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.
  • Once the rice is done, add the Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee, salt and pepper to taste.
  • 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.
  • Serves 2 generously as a meal.
