Warm Quinoa with Greens - Bravabod

The secret to making such a simple dish delicious is two-fold: the crispy browning on the vegetables, and the undertone of coconut oil. Once you get the hang of this recipe, it's very versatile. Swap the vegetables for what you have in the refrigerator (zucchini, cauliflower, chard, beet greens, cabbage, etc) and even play with different types of cooked grains. This is a family favorite recipe.

Shopping List
  • 6 cups or handfuls of kale, washed and dried
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: To prepare the quinoa, follow the directions listed on your package. Every 1 cup of uncooked dry quinoa yields between 2 to 3 cups when cooked.
  2. Step 2: Remove the hard, fibrous stems from the kale. Chop the kale and the broccoli into large 1 inch pieces.
  3. Step 3: Heat the coconut oil in a wide frying pan or cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the broccoli and kale to the pan. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring every minute or so (don’t stir constantly, otherwise you won't achieve the crispy browning on the sides).
  4. Step 4: Add in a few tablespoons of water and stir. Allow the liquid to cook off completely, about 1 to 2 minutes. Once the liquid has cooked off, add in the quinoa and salt. Stir together to combine.
  5. Serve: Enjoy. This dish goes well alongside black beans or simple poached chicken.
