Quinoa, Lentil, and Kale Salad

This is meant to be a very basic, base recipe that anything can be added to.  Tofu, chicken, other vegetables, etc.  I was just using things I had in house.  It can be eaten warm or cold.  (I wanted to try it before it cooled and it tasted good warm).

Ingredients:

1 bunch Kale

1 cup dried lentils, cooked per directions

1 cup dry quinoa, cooked per directions

lemon

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 1/2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

Salt

Pepper

Onion Powder

Garlic Powder

 

Directions:

  1. Cook lentils according to directions and then drain.  You’ll want to undercook them slightly if you want a little more crunch and less mush.  (Mine were more mush but still tasted good).
  2. Cook Quinoa according to directions.
  3. Mix lentils & Quinoa together
  4. While Lentils & Quinoa are still warm, toss in kale.  This will get it to wilt slightly
  5. Add remaining ingredients.  I used flavored olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
