Brown Rice with Sweet Italian Sausage Kale and Bell Peppers

I made this dish months ago and completely forgot to post it. I came across the recipe today in my notebook when I was going over the recipe I was originally planning on posting today. So, game change, I decided to post this one instead. This is a super easy dish the whole family will enjoy. You can make this with microwaveable brown rice, or leftover brown rice from your chinese food delivery (come on you know you're always trying to come up with ideas for all that leftover rice. I'm not the only one am I?) You can serve this to little ones 12+ months.

Here's what you need for 4 to 6 servings:
1 1/2 cups microwaveable brown rice (or your leftover delivery food brown rice)
4 sweet Italian turkey sausages (casings removed)
1 cup finely chopped organic kale
1 handful pine nuts
1 organic green bell pepper diced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Pepper to taste

Cook microwaveable rice according to package. If using leftover rice just set it aside till later in the recipe. Put sausage in a large deep skillet and cook over medium high heat (about 5 to 8 minutes). Add diced peppers and cook for another 2 minutes. Add rice, kale, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, garlic and pepper. Add chicken stock and toss to coat. Cook for another 2 to 5 minutes. Let cool, serve and enjoy!
