Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a medium saucepan, combine the White Quinoa (1 cup) and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes.
Step 2
Let quinoa stand covered for 10 minutes off the heat. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
Step 3
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the Tuscan Kale (1 bunch) , Carrot (1) , Lemon Juice (2 Tbsp) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) , and Sea Salt (as needed) .
Step 4
With clean hands, toss the kale until very well coated in the lemon and oil.
Step 5
Add the cooked quinoa to the kale along with the Dried Chickpeas (2 cups) , Dried Currants (1/4 cup) , and Hemp Seeds (1 Tbsp) , if using. Mix until well-incorporated and taste for seasoning.
Step 6
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick or cast iron skillet. Pat dry the Skin-On Salmon Fillets (4) (salmon should be about 4-ounces) and season with salt.
Step 7
Cook the salmon skin-side down over high heat until nicely browned, 2-3 minutes. Carefully flip the fish and cook for another 2 minutes, until opaque up the sides.
Step 8
Divide the quinoa between 4 bowls and top with the seared salmon.
Step 9
For the sauce, whisk together Tahini (1/4 cup) , Water (1/2 cup) , Lemon Juice (2 Tbsp) , Greek Yogurt (1/2 cup) , and Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) until smooth. Add more water as necessary to make the sauce drizzle-friendly.
Step 10
Spoon over the fish and serve immediately.
