Saucy Quinoa

This easy 5 ingredient meal is now going to be in the Morrison family meal rotation.  I found this recipe in my latest VegNews magazine issue.  It is super easy and quick.  I will share the recipe as it is hard to read from the magazine.  I am sharing the amounts of ingredients that I used for my family of six.

Saucy Quinoa

Ingredients:

Favorite marinara sauce

1 tablespoon crushed garlic

2 cups fresh kale leaves torn into smaller pieces (no stems)

1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Sea salt

Black pepper

4 cups cooked

(you could change it up by changing the type of marinara sauce you use, or use spinach instead of kale or maybe great northern white beans in the place of the chickpeas)

How to cook:

In a saucepan, over medium heat, add marinara, garlic, kale and chickpeas and cook, add salt and/or pepper, stirring occasionally, until kale wilts and mixture is heated throughout.  Serve mixture over cooked quinoa.  Eat.
