Asian Quinoa-Kale

I hope you're not sick of quinoa just yet! I love cooking with quinoa because it tastes just a little nutty so it definitely isn't bland, but it also really takes on whatever flavors you mix in with it. This is another great weekday meal that is very easy and fast to make. It's also great cold as a leftover for lunch!

Quinoa is made 2 cups of water to 1 cup of quinoa
Mix together in a pot and simmer until all the water is absorbed
Quinoa takes about 20 minutes

2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 stalks of chives (green onions), chopped
Sautee the chives and garlic in olive oil for 1 minute
Add in 1/2 a bag of frozen kale (another great thing about this recipe, other vegetables can easily be substituted in here!)

Once the frozen kale has cooked add:
2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
4 tablespoons of tamari soy sauce
4 tablespoons of red pepper flakes (I like things spicy! If you don't, add less than this)

Add the Kale mixture into the pot with your quinoa and you're done!

Enjoy! Thanks for following along!
