  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, toast quinoa over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring until grains separate. Add water and salt; heat to boiling. Cover; reduce heat to low. Simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Let stand covered 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix lemon juice and garlic. While beating with whisk, pour olive oil into garlic mixture. Add tomatoes, parsley, cilantro, mint, green onions, pepper, chick peas and kale. Toss to thoroughly coat.
  • 3
    Fluff quinoa with fork. Add quinoa to tomato mixture. Toss to combine (the kale will wilt slightly). Sprinkle with cheese.

Expert Tips

  • If you prefer, substitute gluten-free feta or queso fresco cheese for the chèvre cheese.
  • Parsley and cilantro are such tender herbs, that the leaves and stalks can be chopped together for this salad.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
