    1. Bring water to the boil in a saucepan; add quinoa and red pepper. Return water to the boil, cover and reduce heat to low; cook for about 10 minutes. Add kale and continue cooking until quinoa is tender, about 5 minutes more.
    2. Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot oil until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes; transfer to a large bowl. Stir feta cheese, almonds, lemon juice, lemon zest and olive oil with the onion mixture; add quinoa mixture and stir. Season mixture with sea salt and cracked black pepper.

    We loved this recipe - even my husband who says he doesn’t like kale took two helpings. The only change I made was using two red peppers instead of three (they were pretty big).  -  18 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
