Dinner: kale and quinoa pilaf

Kale quinoa

Source: Food 52

I always try and have quinoa in my cupboard since it goes with so many different things and is great for lunch or dinner. Today I had some leftover kale so this recipe seemed perfect, the pilaf is healthy and really easy to make for a Sunday evening. If you start googling ‘walnut oil substitute’ as I did, read all about it here. I used olive oil, but next time (when it isn’t so late on a Sunday that I am contemplating toast as an acceptable kind of dinner) I will definitely be trying it with the walnut oil, as it will be even more delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 bunch lacinato kale, washed and chopped into 1″ lengths
  • 1 meyer lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted walnut oil
  • 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

Breakfast: DIY granola

granola

Granola is on just about every breakfast menu yet is so easy to make you never need to buy it again! Foodie Underground has a great recipe, but it can be added to or modified in any way you like, depending on how you fancy your granola. Although the initial outlay will be a little expensive…it will make so much granola it is definitely worth it (plus have less sugar than most of the other ‘healthy’ stuff out there…)

If you make just one thing this week….it should absolutely be this. Enjoy!

Ingredients
3 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup dried fruit
