15 Minute Breakfast Kale Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe Jeanettes

Breakfast Kale Quinoa “Fried Rice” is a delicious, healthy savory breakfast idea that will keep you full throughout the morning.My husband loves fried rice – I think he could eat it almost every day, even for breakfast. To make his favorite fried rice healthier, I’ve been using whole grains in place of white rice – most days I use leftover brown rice but recently, I tossed in some leftover cooked quinoa. I took this opportunity to sneak in some vegetables at breakfast too. My recent obsession is baby kale – I love how mild tasting it is, the perfect addition to fried rice and omelets.

Breakfast Kale Quinoa Fried

This kale quinoa “fried rice” recipe takes just 15 minutes to make if you have leftover quinoa on hand. If you’ve never made quinoa, check out my post on how to cook quinoa.

I sauteed some chopped garlic first, before scrambling in a few eggs. Then, the quinoa went in along with a splash of rice wine, oyster sauce and a drizzle of sesame oil. Finally, a few handfuls of baby kale were tossed into the wok until the leaves just wilted. I loved how fluffy and light the quinoa got when it was stir-fried in my wok.

This Breakfast Kale Quinoa Fried Rice is a great way to start the day – packed with protein and an easy way to get some greens in at breakfast time.

Crock Pot Jamaican Spiced Chicken Stew Recipe Jeanettes Healthy

Crock Pot Jamaican Spiced Chicken Stew is a Caribbean themed chicken recipe, spiced with curry powder, thyme, allspice and red pepper flakes. It’s delicious served with rice and a simple green salad. The slow cooker is great for braising chicken until it is fall-off-the-bone tender. I’ve been making this easy, delicious and healthy recipe for my family for a while, and it is a nice change to our weekly menu.

Crock Pot Jamaican Spiced Chicken Stew - this Caribbean themed chicken recipe is spiced with curry powder, thyme, allspice and red pepper flakes. It's delicious and great served with rice and a simple green salad

When my youngest son was a baby, we had a wonderful Jamaican babysitter. She was exceptionally warm and had the biggest smile on her face. Not only was she patient and loving, but she was also a good cook. In fact, she taught me how to make Jamaican porridge for my father-in-law who had Parkinson’s disease and was on a soft food diet, as well as Jamaican Curry Chicken. She even made ackee and saltfish one day, Jamaica’s national dish.

Like so many cuisines that I have been exposed to, I challenged myself to learn how to cook some of the foods from Jamaica. I’ve made Jerk Chicken and Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken, and love the rich, deep flavors. This Crock Pot Jamaican Spiced Chicken Stew is may not be authentically Jamaican, but it has the warm spices that are found in Jamaican cooking. It’s almost a cross between Jamaican Curry Chicken and Jamaican Jerk Chicken, made with spices found in Jamaican cuisine — allspice, thyme, pepper and curry.

Although this recipe is cooked in a slow cooker, the key to deeper flavors is to brown the chicken on the stovetop first. A slight reduction of red wine adds another layer of flavor.

Then, everything is placed in a slow cooker, including chopped tomatoes and cooked black beans.

All you need is some steamed rice and a simple green salad to go along with this Crock Pot Jamaican Spiced Chicken Stew to make a complete comforting meal. For busy nights, I keep this stew warm in the slow cooker, and the rice warm in the rice cooker. The other night, my husband and I had to run to a meeting, so this was the perfect way for the kids to serve themselves dinner when they were hungry.
