Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 6

  1. Fill a pot with water. Once water is heated a bit, add veggie base. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the quinoa, bring heat to low, and cover. Let cook for 12-15 minutes. Open lid and fluff with a fork. All liquid should be absorbed.

  2. Meanwhile, steam green beans in microwave according to directions on bag.

  3. Heat a medium pan/skillet to medium heat. Add pine nuts and toast in the pan, stirring frequently. Remove from heat when lightly browned, probably after 5 mins. Place in small bowl for now.

  4. In the same pan/skillet, heat the olive oil on medium. Add mushrooms, chard stems and garlic. Cook 5 mins, stirring frequently. Then add green beans, chard leaves, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook 3 mins, stirring frequently. Mix in pine nuts.


Serve quinoa either with veggie mix atop or mixed in. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast.
