  1. Bring brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.
  2. Place collard greens and 2 peeled whole garlic cloves in a pot; add enough water to cover. Boil until collards are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  3. Combine okra, tomatoes, chayote squash, and 2 crushed garlic cloves in a separate large pot; bring to a boil and cook until okra has thawed, about 5 minutes. Reduce to a simmer; season with ground ginger, dill weed, ground cumin, and cilantro to taste. Add collard greens; simmer until flavors have blended, at least 40 minutes (1 hour for best flavor).
  4. Mash kidney beans together with tomato paste in a bowl; add to the stew. Stir in cooked rice and mix well. Add a spoonful of flour to thicken, if desired. Adjust seasonings to taste.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have time, simmer the collard greens and vegetables for an hour or more for a deeper flavor and thicker consistency.

I used Kale versus collards

If you do not drain the completely in step 3 it will benefit the consistency of the stew later on. Overall, I did not enjoy this even as a side dish. It still felt incomplete even as a side and ...
