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, and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to sit for another 20 minutes. (This will yield 2 cups cooked quinoa).
Slice mushrooms and wash and chop kale into small pieces.
Saute mushrooms in 2 tbsp of olive oil for about 3 minutes over medium heat.
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.
Add the pre-cooked quinoa or a bag of frozen quinoa. (If using frozen quinoa and kale, omit the steps of cooking the quinoa and preparing the kale).
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.
