+ 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
+ 1 scallion, chopped
+ 1/2 c. finely diced red bell pepper
+ 4 c. chopped kale
+ 3 c. shredded or grated sweet potato
+ 1/2 c. crushed pineapple in juice, not drained
+ 2 c. shredded cooked chicken
+ 1/2 c. cooked brown rice
+ 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
+ 1/2 tsp. salt
+ 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
+ 1 package 6-inch egg roll wrappers
+ 1/3 c. plain yogurt
+ 2 Tbsp. lime juice
+ 2 tsp. honey
What to do:
1. In a large sauté pan, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the scallions and peppers and cook for about 2 minutes. Add kale and sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring often. Add the pineapple and its juice, chicken, rice, cayenne, and salt and cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add cilantro.
2. Preheat the oven to 400*F. Fill each egg roll wrapper with approximately 3 tablespoons filling in the center of the roll. Fold in both sides and tightly roll closed according to egg roll package instructions. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes or until lightly golden. While the pockets cook, whisk together the yogurt, lime juice, and honey for a dipping sauce.
