Quinoa with Salmon and Swiss Chard

Quinoa with Salmon and Swiss Chard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 pound salmon fillets
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup water, or more as needed to cover
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, stems and tough ribs removed, leaves cut into 1/2-inch-wide ribbons
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir quinoa into onion mixture until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour vegetable broth into quinoa mixture. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat salmon, white wine, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until salmon is cooked through and easily flaked with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes; drain.
  5. Transfer salmon to a plate and flake fish meat; discard skin and set salmon aside.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Stir Swiss chard and lemon juice into garlic until Swiss chard begins to soften, about 2 minutes; remove from heat.
  8. Gently fold flaked salmon and chard into the cooked quinoa. Season with salt and black pepper.
