Quinoa from Joy the Baker

1 1/2 cups raw quinoa

4 large eggs, beaten

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 bunch (about 3 cups) chopped dino kale

splash of apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/3 cup coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes

1/3 cup chopped parsley

1 cup panko bread crumbs (optional)

Place dry quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Wash under cool water for a few minutes. Quinoa needs to be rinsed or it tastes dirty.

In a medium saucepan place rinsed quinoa, water Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cover, decrease the heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the quinoa is tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. We’ll need about 3 cups of cooked quinoa for the recipe.

In a small bowl, whisk eggs and set aside.

In a large pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add kale and toss until just slightly wilted, about 1 minutes. Lower heat and add a splash of vinegar.
Add quinoa.
Add cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, break crumbs, salt, and pepper. Add beaten eggs and stir until all of the quinoa mixture is moistened. Add water to thoroughly moisten mixture. Quinoa should be slightly wet so it doesn’t dry out during cooking.
