Nothing screams healthy than quinoa and kale, but not only is this dish healthy but it is actually really tasty and filling as well. I also love that this is super easy to make (15 minutes and dinner is served)!

Quinoa is high in protein and fiber, and also a great source of folate…more on that at a later post.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of kale, chopped (option to use arugula or bok choy as an alternative)
  • 2 garlics, mashed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • olive oil or coconut oil
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook quinoa in a pot with water until it sprouts and ready to eat (~15 minutes). Follow the boiling/cooking instructions on the quinoa package.
  2. In the meantime, heat a pan with oil in medium heat.
  3. Once the pan is hot, add the garlic and let it cook for 10 seconds, or until fragrant.
  4. Add the kale and shredded carrots. Cook for ~1 minute.
  5. Add the cooked quinoa and mix the ingredients together. Add sea salt, then seal the pan with a lid so the dish can simmer in low heat ~1 minute. Make sure you don’t overcook the kale.
  6. Stir the dish, and add pepper to taste. This can be served hot or cold. ENJOY!!!
