Red Quinoa Pilaf with Kale and Corn
Posted By Nava On September 12, 2011 @ 9:12 am In Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes,We Love Quinoa | 15 Comments
I love recipes that are impressive enough to serve guests, yet easy enough to make as an everyday dish. In Vegan Holiday Kitchen , this recipe is offered as a Thanksgiving side dish; it’s so hearty that the addition of a cup or two of beans (yummy with black beans), can make it plentiful entree. Or, to dress it up even more, use it to stuff small squashes like golden acorn or delicata. Can’t find red quinoa? Regular is fine; it will taste just as good, even if it won’t be as photogenic.

Serves: 4 to 6
Combine the quinoa with 3 cups broth in a medium saucepan. Bring to a rapid simmer, then cover and simmer gently until the broth is absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. If the quinoa isn’t quite done, add an additional 1/2 cup broth (or water) and continue to cook until absorbed.
Strip the kale leaves away from the stems. Discard the stems, or slice them very thinly. Cut the kale leaves into narrow strips. Rinse well and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet or stir-fry pan. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat until golden.
Add the kale, stir together, and cover; raise the heat to medium and cook until wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a serving container and serve at once, or cover until needed.
Variation: Kañiwa  (a miniscule high-protein grain related to quinoa) works well in this, too.
