Rustic Tomato, Rice & Kale Stew

Rustic Tomato, Rice & Kale Stew

This is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink stew, but we figured that might not make the most positive first impression.  Grain, vegetables, and starch...this has it all.  The addition of black beans, if you have a can in your pantry, would only serve to balance it further, no?

Ingredients
• 1¼ cups brown rice, cooked
• 1 (28-ounce) can fire-roasted tomatoes
• 3 cups vegetable broth, divided (low-sodium preferred)
• ¾ cup nutritional yeast flakes
• 1 bunch kale, ribs removed and julienned
• 3 red potatoes, diced
• 2 cups frozen vegetable blend
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 tablespoon chili powder
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 2 cloves minced fresh garlic)
• cayenne pepper, to taste
• salt, to taste
Instructions
• Prepare the rice according to package instructions.
• While the rice is cooking, add the fire-roasted tomatoes and 1 cup of vegetable broth to a high-speed blender, then blend on low until smooth. Pour the mixture into a large, heavy-bottomed pot.
• Add the potatoes and 2 cups of vegetable broth to the pot and boil until the potatoes are fork tender, about 10-15 minutes.
• Add the frozen vegetables and seasonings (bay leaves, chili powder, garlic, powder, cayenne, and salt), and reduce the heat to a simmer.
• When the vegetables are cooked through, add the kale and cooked rice. Season to taste, adding more spice and salt if desired.
• Simmer on low until the kale is tender, at least 10 minutes.
• Finally, remove the bay leaves and serve.
