Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 12 oz bag frozen green beans that you steam in bag
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 8 oz crimini or baby bella mushrooms (sliced)

  • 1 clove garlic (minced or chopped)
  • 1+ cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/2 t salt

Instructions

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