18 Minute Prep: Quinoa, Purple Kale and Happy Braised Garlic Beef

1/3 cup organic quinoa per person
2/3 cup organic turkey broth per person (or water or other broth)
1/4 cup chopped onions per person
1 small organic carrot per person
1 stalk organic celery per person

Method: Measure quinoa into a heavy saucepan (I use cast iron). Roast the grain until slightly brown adding onions for a few minutes to also brown. Add broth/water and vegetables, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Purple Kale
1/2 - 3/4 cup organic purple kale per person
1 tbsp hemp oil
lemon juice/apple cider vinegar to taste
cayenne to taste

Method: Steam kale lightly and sprinkly hemp oil and condiments after removing from heat.

Happy Beef
115 g organic beef per person-I used round steaks since they are low in saturated fat
1 clove garlic per steak

Method: I pressed the garlic and then thinly sliced the clove to rub into the beef and sit for a few hours. I pre-heated a cast iron grill pan on broil before placing the steak on it and broiled lightly. Preheating the cast iron pan allows the steak to cook on both sides simultaneously!
