Warm Salad/Rice Bowl with Kale and Spicy Sauce

This is such a great food day, and a bad day for my phone to be broken!
I didn't know what to call this other than delicious!  I know that these pictures suck, and it may sound weird to eat a grain with a salad, but try it!  It's awesome!!

Just throwing stuff together and it turns out great! Love when that happens! A salad like this is great because you can really throw in anything you want to use up.  Like beans, veggies, nuts, or grains.  It's all good! I'm always coming up with things, or planning my week around what I have already.  In order to plan and save money, and eat healthy at the same time.  I swear I'm the laziest person in the world, so if I can do it, you can do it!

Healthy with some indulgence in the sauciness.  I got this aioli as a Christmas present, don't know where it's from.  So, you can use just vegan mayo or go to a grocery store and see what you can find!  Or just use any dressing you like, the mayo texture though is pretty bomb in this I think!  

Serves 1-2

Leftover plain brown rice 1/2 cup
1 large kale leaf
1/2 cup organic salad blend
Chunk of red, orange, and yellow pepper chopped
Chopped onion (as much as you want)
6 cherry tomatoes chopped
1/4 cucumber chopped


Juice from 1/2 lemon
1tsp olive oil
1 tsp habanaro mango aioli
1 tsp vegan mayo

Chop all veggies and place into good size bowl, except cucumber and tomato. Warm rice with vegan butter, and try to get it pretty hot. Add rice to veggies while hot so it wilts the kale slightly. Top with tomatoes and cucumber. Mix up the sauce in a little bowl first, and then add it and some salt and pepper on top.  Add more dressing ingredients as needed.  I never measure things like that. Eat and thank me later!
