Disclosure: I received something of value from Pylian Estates through FitFluential for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I hope you enjoy my Curried Quinoa and Kale Recipe using the Pylian Estates Olive Oil!
The other night for dinner I was CRAVING some veggies but wanted something a bit filling and spicy as well. I checked out the fridge and had a bunch of fresh kale, and as I looked in the pantry I found some quinoa. Yes, that is how it is sometimes around here.
My meal plan goes out the window and I grasp at straws.
This time it turned out great and even the kids enjoyed this mildly spicy dish. BTW, the spice level is totally up to you based on what kind of curry powder you have on hand. I had some Malaysian Ginger Curry that I picked up from Mickey’s Pantry on our last trip after I ate at Sanna one too many times and started to crave curry spices. I mixed the spices with some Pylian Estates EVOO! Since I have stopped going to Italy, it has been so hard to find a Olive Oil that reminded me of the one I brought back on my travels. I must say, Pylian Estates is amazing! It is very fragrant and alive.
I also wanted to add a bit more protein and nutrients to the dish so I cooked the quinoa in some chicken bone broth I had in the fridge. You could also use just water or a veggie broth too. Quinoa is very easy to make and kind of full proof 🙂 Quinoa is also very versatile, you can use it for breakfast, like I did here with adding some apples or lunch or dinner as it really takes the flavor of whatever you cook it with and has a slightly nutty taste. I made it into a summer salad in this recipe.
I hope you enjoy my latest creation! What are your favorite ways to enjoy quinoa?
- 2 Cups Rinsed Quinoa
- 1 Bunch Kale
- 4 Cups Bone Broth or Water or Veggie Broth based on your taste
- Rinse Quinoa and add to pot
- Add 4 cups liquid (Bone Broth, Water or Veggie Broth depending on Taste)
- Bring to boil and then turn burner off or to low and set timer for 15 minutes
- Rinse Kale and remove from stem, be sure to discard any thicker stems
- Heat up large sauté pan with some olive oil (I LOVE Pilyan Estates)
- Add in Curry Powder to heated EVOO to your taste to sauté pan, I used about 2 tsp
- Add in Kale and sauté until tender, about 10 min or so.
- Once 15 minutes passed, check quinoa. The liquid should be absorbed, but the quinoa should still be moist.
- Add quinoa to kale and serve!
