Vegan Pineapple & Kale Fried Rice

Kale is so much more than this green piece of frilly lettuce that gets even greener once you cook it. Raw or cooked, I love this veggie so so much because the taste is quite unique. And when you know how packed with all kindsn of good vitamins and minerals it is (manganese, calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium), you love it even more.

Featuring today on a really good find: I stumbled upon this recipe on the cooking blog “glue and glitter” and it was such a pleasure to replicate it. I simplified the recipe as always and made it even easier! This is the kind of vegan meals that feel like comfort food but 100% healthy comfort food. Give it a try and tell me what you think in the comment section down below.
