Marinated Vegetable & Quinoa Bowl with Sesame Kale & Spicy Orange
Title
  • 2 Pasture-Raised Eggs
  • ½ cup Red Quinoa
  • 1 Navel Orange
  • 6 oz Carrots
  • 3 oz Radishes
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • 1 Tbsp Mirin
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 2 Tbsps Fromage Blanc
  • 1 bunch Kale
Make the soft-boiled eggs:
1 Make the soft-boiled eggs:

Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs. Cook, uncovered, 6 to 7 minutes. Leaving the water boiling, using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the eggs to a strainer and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs; season with salt and pepper.

2 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the vegetables:

While the eggs cook, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel and medium dice the orange. Place in a bowl; add as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Grate the radishes on the large side of a box grater. Combine in a bowl; add the mirin. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

While the quinoa cooks, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat.
