Quickie Kale and Quinoa Dinner

I love miso. I think I could eat this dinner three times a week and never get sick of it.

Quickie Kale and Quinoa Dinner


  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • kale, torn into pieces
  • mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 heaping tbsp red miso
  • 1 egg
  • sesame seeds


  • Cook your quinoa. When it starts to simmer, add the minced garlic.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large pan. Add the shallots and saute for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and miso and about 2 tbsp water. Saute for about another 4 minutes, or until mushrooms are soft.
  • Add the kale and cook for another minute or two, or until kale wilts.
  • Mix the kale mixture in with the cooked quinoa.
  • In the same pan, fry the egg.
  • Plate the quinoa, add the egg on top and sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds.

I usually cook quinoa with broth, but the miso already adds a lot of flavour.

You'll need to add some water to liquify the miso. I also added some chili flakes for some heat.

This mixture is also good when cold and eaten for lunch the next day.

I love how orange the yolk from organic eggs are!
