Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 1 + 1/2 cups water
  • 5 cups chopped curly kale
  • 1/2 tsp healthy oil (avocado, olive, etc...)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 + 1/2 cups frozen sweet corn
  • 1 cup frozen edamame
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (any color)
  • 2-4 TBSP green onion
  • additional salt and pepper, to taste as desired
  • EASY PEASY SALAD DRESSING
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Can use fresh or frozen corn. Steam if frozen or sauté if using fresh from the cob.


Instructions

  1. First rinse and drain your quinoa using a mesh strainer or sieve. Bring a small pot to medium heat and lightly toast the quinoa to remove any excess water. Stir as it toasts for just a few minutes. This step is optional but really adds to the nuttiness and fluff factor of the quinoa! Next add your water, set burner to high, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with the lid slightly ajar, for 12-13 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and the liquid has been absorbed.
