Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Coat an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray, then coat with sesame seeds.
  3. Fill a large bowl with ice and water; set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add kale; blanch until bright green, approximately 8-10 seconds. Transfer hot spinach to the ice bath to cool for 30 seconds, remove and drain water. Set aside kale on a paper towel.
  4. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Add Vidallia onion, garlic, thyme and chili powder; sauté until translucent, approximately 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat; transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
  5. Add kale, cooked quinoa, yogurt, eggs, sea salt and pepper to the onion mixture; mix well to combine. Transfer quinoa mixture into the prepared baking dish and place in the oven. Bake until set and golden brown, approximately 60 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven.
  7. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of Greek plain yogurt for dipping, if desired.
  8. Enjoy!

The ingredient list does not mention spinach anywhere, but in the instructions it says "Transfer hot spinach to the ice bath to cool for 30 seconds".
I presume it is supposed to be Kale, or does the recipe use both vegetables?

Amie also has this recipe that uses spinach instead of kale that I saw in Easy Eats.
