Leftover Quinoa and Kale

This is my favorite hearty weekend morning breakfast. I first discovered this recipe about a year ago after picking up Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Its All Good”.

Now a staple in my kitchen, I recommend anyone trying to get clean to pick it up immediately! Her struggle to become healthy is inspiring and her recipes are clean, easy, and delicious!!!

What You’ll Need:

2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or fat of choice)

1 clove garlic minced

2 large leaves of Kale (stems discarded) finely chopped

1/2 cup quinoa (cooked, follow directions on package)

Coarse Sea Salt

Fresh ground black pepper

1 Egg (Gwyneth suggests it poached but I like mine sunny side up, cooked in olive oil)

1 Scallion

Heat oil and garlic over medium heat in a small skillet until the garlic begins to soften (about 1 minute). Add the shredded kale and cook, stirring now and then, until the kale is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring, until warmed through, another 2 minutes. Season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper. Place the mixture in a shallow bowl or plate, top with egg and scallions.

Serve with Hulk Juice or Fresh Coffee : ) Happy Saturday!
