Buckle up, because the power bowl just got a whole lot more powerful. Yep, this dish is a veritable one-bowl feast that’s positively bursting with flavor. The base is savory, carrot-studded rice, and it’s topped with pickled red cabbage, tender sautéed kale, curry-spiced crispy chickpeas, golden raisins, and a tangy curry-lemon dressing. It doesn’t get much better than that.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Drain and rinse chickpeas; thoroughly pat dry with paper towels. Trim, peel, and quarter carrot lengthwise; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Zest and quarter lemon. Remove and discard any large stems from kale; finely chop leaves. Place raisins in a small bowl with enough hot water to just cover.
• Toss chickpeas on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil, half the curry powder (you’ll use more in the next step), salt, and pepper. • Roast on top rack until crispy, 18-20 minutes. (It’s natural for chickpeas to pop a bit as they roast.)
• While chickpeas roast, melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small pot over high heat. Add carrot and ¼ tsp curry powder (½ tsp for 4). (You’ll use the rest of the curry powder in the next step.) Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Add rice, 1 cup water (1¾ cups for 4), stock concentrate, and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 tsp sugar and juice from three lemon wedges (2 tsp sugar and juice from six wedges for 4 servings); stir to dissolve. Add cabbage and 2 TBSP water (4 TBSP for 4); season with salt and pepper. Microwave for 1 minute. Set aside, tossing occasionally, until ready to serve. • In a second small bowl, combine sour cream, lemon zest, remaining curry powder, and juice from remaining lemon. Season with salt and pepper. Add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.
• Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add kale and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5-7 minutes. • Stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) until melted. Remove from heat.
• Fluff rice with a fork; stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) and season with salt and pepper. • Divide rice between bowls. Top with kale, pickled cabbage (draining first), and chickpeas. Drain raisins and sprinkle over top, roughly chopping first if desired. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
