Today I'm sharing my favorite simple go-to quinoa and kale salad. I love this recipe because it's quick, easy and nutritious. It can be a delicious side dish or a meal on its own. The best part it only needs three ingredients - quinoa, kale and garlic, plus salt and pepper.... This salad is ready practically in no time and can be served warm or cold.
On a side note I love how this photo turned out. I used two black poster boards for the background but after editing, simple black transformed into a warm grey-sh bluish color. Ha!
I've been really enjoying experimenting with food photography since the Corona virus started. Food styling has been a lot of fun as well. Still I miss getting outside and shooting outdoors. Even though things are getting better on Long Island, I feel anxious about leaving my home all the same.
Food photography has been a great destruction during these hard times. It takes my mind off the terrible .things that are happening in our country on a daily basis. I literally stopped watching the news it's so heartbreaking and overwhelming. It's difficult being an empath during these troubling times.
Anyway, here's my quinoa and kale salad recipe.
1 cup quinoa
1 bunch kale
5 garlic cloves, chopped
tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Cook quinoa until soft.
Saute garlic in olive oil.
Add kale to the pen and cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Combine quinoa and kale. Mix well.
Add salt and pepper to state.
Serve warm or cold.
