Sauteed quinoa and kale with mushrooms.
Pre-cook quinoa by adding 1 cup of washed quinoa to 1 1/4 cup salted water or vegetable broth. Heat until boiling then cover it and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to sit for another 20 minutes. (This will yield 2 cups cooked quinoa).
Wash and chop kale into small pieces. Rub the chopped kale with your hands until it becomes bright green and shiny.
Toss in the kale
and stir fry with the mushrooms for another 2-3 minutes.
Fry for another 5 minutes
until the quinoa is fairly dry and slightly crispy. Salt to taste.
Garnish with green onions and serve either hot or cold.
