I'm not normally a kale fan, but this might make a believer out of me. The quinoa on it's own was amazing and then it just got topped with even more goodness!

I really want to try this with other greens too. I think it would be amazing with arugula.

  1. Start with the quinoa. Bring the water and quinoa to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Cook around 15 minutes until finished.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, prep your kale. Cut out the stems, unless they're small enough that they will cook down.
  3. Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil in a pan.
  4. Add the garlic when hot and cook until you can smell it.
  5. Add the kale and sauté until soft and tender.
  6. Add butter beans and cook until slightly crisp.
  7. By now the quinoa should be done.
  8. Remove from heat, and stir in some olive oil (take a turn around the pot, should be enough. Approx 1 Tb), and the lemon juice and zest.
  9. Season the kale and beans and quinoa to taste.
  10. To serve, put down a scoop of quinoa and top with the kale and beans. Or it's delicious all mixed in together.
  11. Top it with some halved olives and enjoy!
