  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 small sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into ¾-inch pieces

  • 10 ounces button mushrooms, quartered

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 bunch kale, stems discarded and leaves torn into 2-inch pieces

  • ¾ cup dry white wine

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce)


  1. Place the quinoa and 2 cups water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.

  3. Add the sweet potatoes and mushrooms and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden and beginning to soften, 5 to 6 minutes.

  4. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

  5. Add the kale, wine, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing often, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

  6. Serve the vegetables over the quinoa and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
