Try this Kale and Quinoa Pilaf, a fresh and healthy side dish you can make in a snap. You can substitute 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes for the chili paste.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add curry, chili paste, and ginger; sauté 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients; cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Serve at room temperature.

Pretty and nutritious, but not hugely flavorful.

I have made this twice and have a couple of recommendations: I double the amt of curry powder, add broccoli, cook carrots for a few mins before adding everything else, and double amt of soy, cilantro, and garlic. I omit rice and double the amount of quinoa. Top with mango chutney(Earl Grey's brand or Trader Joe's brand), it really brings out the flavor and adds a nice touch. Dish is definitely more flavorful the next day. I really love this dish, great way to have something different for dinner!

Good, but not quite as flavorful as I had hoped. Would bump up the spices.

A tasty, quick meal! If you've never had quinoa before, this is a great dish in which to try it. The fresh cilantro and ginger are essentials.

This was a very tasty, weeknight meal. I might cook down the kale a bit more first. Also, the flavors melded and it was better the second day.
