Healthy Kale Brown Rice and Pinto Beans Salad

I grow a lot of kale in my garden this year, so I had to come up with many different recipes where I could use it. This is a great kale salad that can be eaten warm or cold. The dish is filling and delicious.

Ingredients:
4 cups of chopped kale or colored greens
1 onion
1 tbs Moroccan El Hanous (see the recipe)
1 cup of cooked brown rice
1 can of pinto beans
1 bell pepper
2 tbs olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

 

Saute chopped onions with olive oil and Moroccan El Hanous until onions turn golden (about 3 minutes on medium heat).  Add in the chopped kale and cook for about 5 minutes.
