1 cup dry mixed colored quinoa I like the TruRoots brand (prepare per instructions on package)
2 cups chopped broccoli (frozen is ok to use)
½ chopped red onion
½ chopped red bell pepper
3-4 cup baby kale (remove any large stems)
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp onion powder
½ tbsp mustard (regular or Dijon)
½ a lime squeezed
Salt/pepper to taste
Prepare your quinoa according to directions on your package (mine was 1 cup dry to 2 cups water, brought to a boil and covered and left to simmer for 18 minutes)
While quinoa is cooking add your chopped broccoli, onion, pepper to a skillet pan (sprayed with non-stick spray first) and let cook on medium to high heat for about 12 minutes stirring frequently, then add your kale to the sauté pan with veggies for 1-2 minutes stirring until kale is wilted down?
Prepare dressing by adding olive oil, onion powder, mustard, lime juice, salt and pepper to a bowl and whisking it together, set aside
Once quinoa and veggies are cooked, serve separated like picture above or toss everything in a large mixing bowl and stir in the dressing!
