One pot Kale and Quinoa pilaf

I found this great recipe over at Food 52 and modified for my lifestyle and dietary allergies. Love this!! With all of the fresh kale in season right now, what a great, easy meal to throw together for your family in a hurry.

One pot Kale and Quinoa pilaf… my modified version:

Ingredients:
2 cups salted water
1 cup sprouted quinoa
1 bunch lacinato kale, washed and chopped into 1″ lengths
2 scallions, minced
1 tablespoon of  Wildtree Zesty lemon grapeseed oil
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
1/4 cup Daiya mozz shreds
Himalayan salt and pepper to taste

Bring the water to a boil in a covered pot. Add the quinoa, cover, and lower the heat until it is just enough to maintain a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes, then top with the kale and re-cover. Simmer another 5 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow to steam for 5 more minutes.

While the quinoa is cooking, take a large serving bowl and combinel lemon oil, scallions, hemp seeds and cheese.

Check the quinoa and kale when the cooking time has completed — the water should have absorbed, and the quinoa will be tender but firm, and the kale tender and bright green. If the quinoa still has a hard white center, you can steam a bit longer (adding more water if needed). When the quinoa and kale are done, fluff the pilaf, and tip it into the waiting bowl with the remaining ingredients. As the hot quinoa hits the scallions and add some additional couple drops of lemon essential oil if you want, which will smell lovely. Toss to combine, seasoning with salt and pepper.
