"Great for a quick-but-healthy side dish. White cooking wine can be used instead of 1 tablespoon water at the end of cooking."

Simple, fast, delicious. I was looking for an easy quinoa recipe for a weeknight side dish and this fit the bill. We are trying to replace rice with whole grains like quinoa, and I wanted a dish that incorporated some greens as well to round out the nutritional balance. I had about a tsp of leftover diced onion and half of a diced tomato- added those in with the kale and garlic. This recipe made the perfect amount for two people. Will be making this often.
It is good, but needs a bit more garlic or salt. I'm not a cook so I appreciate the recipe. I think there is a lot of room to experiment.
Very good blend of flavors. I made exactly as the recipe stated. I might use more kale next time, but it was wonderful as is.
Garlic Kale Quinoa Haiku: "A divine side dish! Just needs more than one cup kale, cuz it shrinks so much." I never thought that I'd dive into a side dish w/ as much glee as I did this one, but WOW. I'd recently (finally) finished off a monster amount of Costco's frozen bags of quinoa/kale blend, and didn't want to stuff more of them in my freezer and found this recipe instead. And I am thrilled that I did b/c it is delicious! I've since made it 3 more times, once subbing spinach for kale (just as good), once adding toasted sesame seeds (not necessary, but a nice touch), and all the more recent times, at least doubling the greens b/c they shrink down too much in the heat and we love green chow in our house. A superb, healthy side dish, and ohhhh when I run it through the food-processor a few times, my baby CHOWS DOWN! :-)
I really liked this. It was quick and easy to make. I added a few other seasonings and doubled the recipe, which was perfect for 2 people.
I really liked this--very tasty combination. I did double (or more) the kale and will definitely be making again. Thanks for a great recipe!
Quick, Easy, & Healthy! Added Some Avocado and Called it Dinner :)
I made this with extra kale and mixed quinoa. I also used chicken broth with the quinoa. It was really good. I think that the sesame oil added a nutty flavor that made it! I will definitely make this again.
