Quinoa and Kale Pilaf with Caramalized Balsamic Onions and Peppers
I am always looking for new creative ways to incorporate produce for vegetarian meals as part of my commitment to Meatless Mondays. Quinoa has helped me get by on more than one occasion, and I thought I’d reach for this ingredient on my pantry for this week’s recipe.
This Quinoa and Kale Pilaf recipe has the added benefit of kale, a cruciferous vegetable, along with red peppers and onions to help boost the nutritional profile of the dish and to add some lovely color (an absolute must for me!) and flavor. The best thing about this dish is that it can really be molded to fit any kind of produce you have on hand. Spring vegetables like zucchini and asparagus will soon be in season and both would be delicious additions, much like this recipe with spinach and asparagus.
