Have you heard about the restaurant Sqirl in LA? I’ve never been, but it’s one of those spots that you hear about all over the place — in food-centric magazines, on Instagram, from that one stylish friend who came back from a vacation in sunny California. The owner, Jessica Koslow, is one of those badass women who worked hard to pursue her dream of owning a restaurant, aka she’s kind of my hero.

So after scooping up her cookbook, Everything I Want To Eat, last week, I knew I needed to recreate one of her recipes for you guys. This Kale Rice Bowl is the most delicious bowl of health. I swapped out a poached egg for a hard-boiled egg because I had some on hand, but a poached egg or fried egg would also be really delicious here. And don’t skimp on the fresh dill!


Kale Rice Bowl
Adapted from Everything I Want To Eat

Makes two servings

1 cup brown rice

Kosher salt

1 cup kale leaves (ribs removed)

¼ cup olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

2 large eggs, hard-boiled

2 radishes, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving

2 oz. feta, preferably sheep’s milk, crumbled

Hot sauce


  1. Cook rice and let cool. I cooked mine in my Instant Pot, but I’ve also had success making it this way.
  2. Purée kale, oil, and 1 tbsp. water in a food processor until smooth; season with kosher salt and pepper.
  3. Toss radish with 1 tbsp. lemon juice in a small bowl; season with kosher salt.
  4. Toss rice, 1 tbsp. dill, remaining 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and ⅓ cup kale purée in a medium bowl; season with kosher salt and pepper and mix in more kale purée, as desired.
  5. Serve kale rice topped with hard-boiled eggs, radish, feta, hot sauce, more dill, and sea salt.

Enjoy – and let us know what you think!
