Lemon-Garlic Rice with Sausage and Kale
This flavorful meal-in-a-pot was inspired by Portuguese arroz de grelos com farinheira, a comforting combination of garlicky rice cooked with turnip greens and sausage. We’ve opted for supple lacinato kale (also called dinosaur or Tuscan kale) instead of turnip greens, which are harder to come by in the U.S. Linguiça is a type of Portuguese sausage seasoned with chili and garlic that typically is sold already cooked or smoked. If it’s not available or if you prefer to use a sausage without any spice, kielbasa is a fine substitute.
2tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more to serve
1medium yellow onion, finely chopped
01In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the onion and ½ teaspoon salt; cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the sausage, garlic and pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until sizzling and dry, 45 to 60 seconds. Add the kale a handful at a time, stirring until wilted after each addition. Stir in 2¼ cups water and ½ teaspoon black pepper, then bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce to low and cook until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 15 minutes.
