|Photo props to Tara Stiles (but my recipe adds lentils as well)|
Ingredients (makes 4-6 servings):
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1 cup of quinoa, dry (any type is fine)
- 1 cup of lentils, dry
- 1 to 2 jars of your favorite indian curry sauce (I love Seeds of Change - Madras and their website happens to have a bunch of other recipes you can try with their various curry sauces)
Making it happen:
Chop kale (I toss out the thick stems, but the thin stems are okay by me). Steam kale until just slightly tender (you don't have to use a fancy bamboo steamer here, you can just throw it in a large saucepan with about 1/2 cup of water, boil water and cover; strain water after it's done). Cook quinoa (go here for directions). Cook lentils (go here for directions). Combine kale, quinoa and lentils in a saucepan. Add anywhere between 1 to 2 jars of indian curry sauce depending on your taste - I use 1 1/2 jars (12 oz jars). Simmer on medium heat for about 5 minutes (just enough time to thoroughly heat the sauce). And voila! You'll feel like you're eating in Chennai.
Happy and healthy eating!
