Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring 2 cups water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Heat coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; saute red onion until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add kale, broccoli, tempeh, and garlic; saute until kale is wilted, about 3 minutes.

  • Whisk sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons water, tamari, lime juice, Dijon mustard, ginger, black pepper, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl; pour over kale mixture and cook for 2 minutes.

  • Spoon quinoa into serving bowls and top with kale mixture.

Cook's Note:

Sesame oil can be substituted for the coconut oil, if desired. Soy sauce can replace tamari.
