Super Healthy Pesto Rice

Today I made pesto brown rice. It was a crazy idea and I am glad I tried it. I made the pesto super healthy by using kale and cauliflower to make it. I took step by step pictures of the process tonight. I was going to enter it for a step by step recipe contest, but the deadline isn’t for a while so I think I will work on more ideas for entry.

Here is how to make Pesto Brown Rice.

First you will need 2 cups of brown rice, kale and a half a head of cauliflower. Some olive oil and garlic and salt and pepper and water for the rice also.

And a rice cooker with a veggie steamer and a blender.

The rest is explained with the pictures. And although I am going to take up a lot of data on my site to upload each one, I am doing it anyways, because my presentation side of open office keeps crashing on me, so I am unable to make the slideshow as intended. Sorry, I am going to work on turning a whole lot of pictures into slideshares, because they are supported by wordpress and I am running out of photo room, with that, heres a whole bunch of photos.
