Wash all the vegetables. Dissolve the broth in 400ml of boiling water. For the green mojo: remove the stem of the kale leaves and chop them. Finely chop the bell pepper, 1/4 of the onion and the garlic. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and cook the vegetables for 5 minutes with some salt to taste. Add the parsley, oregano, cumin powder and 2 tablespoons of water, and once the water has completely evaporated, remove the pan from the heat.
Place the stir-fried vegetables in a mixing jar and blend it with a hand blender to a smooth, green paste. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-size pot and sauté the green mojo for a few seconds. Add the rice and hot broth. Let it cook over low heat for 15 minutes, while stirring occasionally, until the rice is ready.
For the garnish: cut the remaining 1/4 of the onion into slices. Chop the black olives and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion for 2 minutes until tender. Add the cherry tomatoes, olives and corn, and cook everything for 3 minutes. Season to taste.
