This recipe originally comes from Whole Foods Market's monthly publication. I modified it a bit. I love it because it contains dark leafy greens which are a nutritional powerhouse. This recipe is a lovely complement to any meat dish, but it has enough flavor to stand all by itself too. NOTE: prep time does not include time to prepare rice. To cook rice, follow directions on package.
