Quinoa, Kale and Sundried Tomatoes

I often will make a large batch of quinoa at one time.  Then I stick half in the fridge and half in the freezer.  That way, I always have some on hand to add to meals.  My husband has been trying to eat less and less grains, so we have been eating a lot more quinoa than rice these days.  I hope you enjoy quinoa, kale and sun dried tomatoes recipe.   One more thing.  Have you ever tried massaged kale?  OMG it is life changing! I always though kale was gross until I learned to massage it.  I made this short video with my daughter to show you how.

You can definitely use massaged kale in this recipe instead of baby kale.  Either way would be great.

  1. Have you thought about eliminating the oil in your recipes? There's no need for all the added fat that a Tbsp or 2 add to a dish. People can get enough fats through whole foods, and your recipes are great without it, and can be replaced by water for sauteing or even some veg broth. Encourage even better health for people, so that they reduce or eliminate the damage they are doing to their endothelial linings of their blood vessels, by using refined oil. If you haven't read Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, by Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, I'd like to suggest the book! He explains it perfectly and has great pictures that show how damaged blood vessels can be repaired, by the elimination of animal fats and refined oils.
    1. I just want to point out that Olive oil is a healthy unsaturated fat. Our bodies need fats, carbs, and proteins for energy.
    1. Thanks Julie! I actually added some avocado the second day I ate this. Sounds weird in this dish, but it was delicious!
  2. I just made this tonight and it was delicious! I only used 1 T olive oil and I ate it with some grated parmesan cheese. Thanks for the easy, delicious Sunday night dinner!
  3. I just made this. It's delicious! AND, I have an avocado to add to the leftovers tomorrow. :) Thanks so much!!
    1. No. I used sun dried tomatoes that came in a bag. You can probably use the ones in oil too and skip the soaking step.
