"Quinoa is a high flavor, high protein grain made popular by the Incas, then rediscovered by NASA. Need I say any more?"

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir quinoa into onion mixture until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour vegetable broth into quinoa mixture. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat salmon, white wine, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until salmon is cooked through and easily flaked with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes; drain.
  5. Transfer salmon to a plate and flake fish meat; discard skin and set salmon aside.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Stir Swiss chard and lemon juice into garlic until Swiss chard begins to soften, about 2 minutes; remove from heat.
  8. Gently fold flaked salmon and chard into the cooked quinoa. Season with salt and black pepper.

Tried cooking this meal tonight. It was actually very tasty, and is a very nutritious meal. The Quinoa is labeled a "super food" and Swiss Chard is one of the most nutritious vegetables. Add ...

Well this is just fabulous! I did grill my salmon with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Otherwise made as written and it is so, so good!

Absolutely my family's favorite recipe from this website. Didn't need to change a thing, although made it once with kale due to what the store had and that was great too.

This was just "okay". It was missing some flavors. The left overs I put in a "quick quiche" recipe from this site and that was great!

I added a little diced tomato I had left over and sautéed the stems of the chard and added it all together

I totally misread the recipe. I had pre-marinated salmon fillets and was looking for a swiss chard recipe when I picked this one. So, I grilled the salmon and made the rest as a side dish and ...

Healthy and tasty nothing stood out to me in flavors, but knowing I got everything recommended in my pregnancy food list was great!
