Pork Tenderloin with Quinoa and Greens
tablespoons curry paste
12 ounces pork tenderloins
14 ounce can chicken broth
tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
cloves garlic, minced
ounces fresh kale, stemmed and torn
cup plain lowfat yogurt (optional)
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Using your fingers, rub curry paste on all sides of pork. Place pork on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
- Roast pork for 20 to 30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of tenderloin registers 145 degrees F. Remove pork from oven. Cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan bring 1 can of the broth to boiling over medium-high heat. Add quinoa, olive oil, and garlic; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large saucepan bring the remaining 1 can broth and the kale to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until kale is tender, stirring occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, transfer kale to a large serving bowl; stir in quinoa.
- Thinly slice pork. Serve with quinoa mixture and, if desired, yogurt. If desired, garnish with parsley.
