Wash and destalk kale and cut into thin stripes.
Heat a large pan over medium-low heat, once hot melt 1/2 Tbsp butter in it and add cashews. Stir constantly to avoid burning and keep the temperature low. Toast for about 2-3 minutes until golden. Set aside.
Keep the pan on the cooktop, add the another 1/2 Tbsp butter and once hot add chopped kale and crushed garlic. Fry until soft (about 3-5 minutes).
Add rice and lemon zest and stir until rice is reheated and well combined with kale.
Remove from heat, squeeze juice of half a lemon over it, salt if necessary, stir in the buttered cashews and serve immediately.
