  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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....

just finished a bowl. Yum! I added a bit of tahini to the sauce.

It was so good!

Easy and tasty
