Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Light Main Dish or Side
Serves: 2-4
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves cut into 1 inch ribbons
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  1. Bring broth to boil in large saucepan. Add quinoa, cover, and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  2. Top quinoa with kale, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, keep covered, and let steam an additional 5 minutes. (I had to return the pan to heat for a few minutes, so that all the liquid was absorbed.)
  3. While quinoa is cooking, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until softened.
  4. In a large bowl, combine quinoa and kale, vegetable mixture, and vinegar.
