INSTRUCTIONS

1

Rinse and dry the produce. Strip kale leaves from the stalk, and rip into 2 inch pieces. Thinly slice the rhubarb at a diagonal, forming thin, 1 inch long pieces. Peel and dice shallot. Zest and juice the lemon into a small bowl. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2

Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh sieve and place in small pot with 2 cups of water and ¼ t salt. Cook for 10-12 minutes on medium high heat, or until water is absorbed and the germ ring starts to separate from each grain.

3

To make the dressing, place diced shallot, garlic, lemon juice and zest, mustard, ¼ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper into a blender. Blend on high speed, adding 2 tablespoons olive oil slowly, until everything is combined.

4

Toss kale leaves and rhubarb slices with the dressing in a large serving bowl, then set it aside to soak in the flavors.

5

In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon agave, 1/4 t salt, and cayenne with hazelnuts. Toss until coated, and then add brown sugar. Toss and distribute into one layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

6

Allow the hazelnuts to cool, then roughly chop. To serve, first plate the kale and rhubarb mix, then top with ½ cup of quinoa, and garnish with the chopped hazelnuts. Enjoy!
