Ingredients
For the Curried Quinoa:
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, grated on a microplane
  • ¾ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon tumeric
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • 1 cup of chicken or vegetable stock
  • ½ cup quinoa, rinsed
For the Sweet Potato & Kale Hash:
  • 3 cups diced sweet potatoes, ½ inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated on a microplane
  • ¾ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground yellow mustard
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 cups chopped kale
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
Instructions
Make the Curried Quinoa:
  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Sautee the onion for 5 - 8 minutes, until soft.
  2. Add the garlic and stir for one minute, until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the curry powder, salt, tumeric and ginger. Stir for a minute or two, until the spices are fragrant.
  4. Add the chicken or vegetable stock. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
  5. Stir in quinoa. Cover, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed.
Make the Sweet Potato & Kale Hash:
  1. Set up a steamer and steam the sweet potatoes until tender, 10 - 15 minutes. Set aside once cooked.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large, nonstick saute pan. Add the garlic and stir for one minute, until fragrant. Stir in the curry powder, ground yellow mustard seed, and kosher salt.
  3. Add kale to the saute pan. It should still have water clinging to its leaves from being washed. This will steam the kale.
  4. Cover and cook for several minutes until tender.
  5. Stir in the steamed sweet potatoes. Add coconut aminos. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
  6. Serve sweet potato and kale hash on a bed of curried quinoa.
