  • 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.

We made it slightly different but it was great! I didn't have quinoa I imagine that would give it a nuttier flavor. Since we used rice I added 2 tbsp of peanut butter and chopped nuts on top. I also added some tumeric because I am trying to work more into my diet. Great recipe thanks for sharing! Read More

I made this according to the recipe except I didn't have tempeh so used an equivalent amount of black eyed peas. Even my teenager really liked it. Read More
