Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa With Kale And Walnuts

6 cups kale, stems removed, finely chopped (1 medium head)
1/2 cup quinoa
8 oz vegetable broth
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbs lemon zest
2 tbs lemon juice
1/3 cup white wine
1/3 cup (heaping) chopped walnuts, toasted
1/3 cup parsley
1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg

Recipe Directions for Quinoa With Kale And Walnuts

  1. Cook quinoa according to the package directions, using chicken stock in place of water. (1 cup quinoa to 2 cups of stock, bring to a boil, cover and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes).

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat olive oil, add onions and red pepper flakes and saute for 3 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add garlic and lemon zest, cook for 1-2 minutes. Add white wine, stir and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add salt & pepper.

  3. Add kale, 1/2 of the lemon juice and the pinch of nutmeg. Stir to combine and allow to cook over a low flame for 5-7 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Now is the time to add those corn kernels.

  4. Add the cooked quinoa to the kale mixture and gently combine. Turn off the heat and add the remaining lemon juice, parsley and toasted walnuts. Taste and add more salt & pepper, if needed.
