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

Directions

  1. Bring 2/3 cup water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; saute kale and garlic in the hot oil until kale is wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir quinoa into kale mixture and add sesame oil; cook until flavors blend, about 5 more minutes. Add 1 tablespoon water to mixture to keep from sticking.

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.
