Creamy Quinoa with Kale

In the fall, Woolrich offered a 10-week Yoga class every Wednesday during lunch. We liked the instructor so much that they brought her back for another one. Today was the first time she was back. Perfect hump day lunch activity.

I didn’t take pictures during the actual session, so me and my two co-workers did a reenactment in the office later.

Yeah, we’re extremely cool people.

For dinner, I made Creamy Quinoa with Kale, a recipe I got from my absolutely favorite “veg*n” blog, Hungry Hungry Hippie (which, btw, is the blog that inspired me to start my own).

Ingredients (you can be flexible with the amounts):

  • 2 cups of quinoa
  • several handful of kale
  • 1 cup of red pepper hummus (add nutritional yeast and thin with water and lemon juice)
  • 4 eggs
  • olive oil

While cooking the quinoa, simmer the kale in olive oil and water.

Prepare the hummus sauce while waiting for that all to happen.

Then mix the quinoa in with the kale and scramble the eggs into it.

Finally, mix in the hummus sauce and there is your delicious, quick, vegetarian and dairy-free dinner!

I made enough to have seconds and end up with lunches for tomorrow.

Definitely an ideal mid-week dinner: quick, healthy, and delicious.
