Sautéed Quinoa and Kale

This side has become a staple for me since I cut down on rice 4 months ago. Not only is it delicious side but you can also enjoy guilt free!





Ingredients
1 cup organic red quinoa
2 cups water
2 cups organic kale, chopped
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp adobo all purpose seasoning
A dash of smoked paprika

Preparation
  1. Place 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer. Cook until all the water is absorbed. Approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan and sauté garlic. Add kale and sauté until soft
  4. Add cooked quinoa to the pan and stir to combine the 2 ingredients.
  5. Sprinkle adobo and paprika and continue stirring for another 6 minutes on medium heat.

  1. Wow Val this looks so good! I have pretty much given up rice myself....I love quinoa. What type of fish is that? I love how you blended kale into the quinoa.

    1. Thank you. The fish was just pan seared salmon. I'm not sure why I'm only now seeing your comment!
