Recipe Ingredients for One Pot Quinoa & Kale

112.879 oz Water
1 cup(43 g) Quinoa
4 serving raw Kale
80 grams Parmesan Cheese
1 lemon yields Lemon Juice
1 cup chopped Green Onions
1 serving Food You Feel Good About Walnut Oil

Recipe Directions for One Pot Quinoa & Kale

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a covered pot. Add the quinoa, cover, and lower the heat until it is just enough to maintain a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes, then top with the kale and re-cover. Simmer another 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow to steam for 5 more minutes.

  2. Ask a question about this step

  3. 2.While the quinoa is cooking, take a large serving bowl and combine half of the lemon juice (reserving the other half), all of the lemon zest, scallions, walnut oil (you can substitute olive oil if you desire), pine nuts, and goat cheese.

  4. Ask a question about this step

  5. 3.Check the quinoa and kale when the cooking time has completed -- the water should have absorbed, and the quinoa will be tender but firm, and the kale tender and bright green. If the quinoa still has a hard white center, you can steam a bit longer (adding more water if needed). When the quinoa and kale are done, fluff the pilaf, and tip it into the waiting bowl with the remaining ingredients. As the hot quinoa hits the scallions and lemon it should smell lovely. Toss to combine, seasoning with salt and pepper, and the remaining lemon juice if needed.
