Recipe slightly adapted from Allrecipes.com. My mom, who's NOT vegi and insists that I don't get enough protein LOVED this recipe and went back for seconds. :-) Quinoa is a complete protein all by itself, and the lentils add extra protein, and chard for the vegi. Yum!
1 tbsp olive oil 1 onion, diced (I used 1/2 a purple onion) 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup uncooked quinoa 1 cup dry lentils (I used red - cook time 15 min) 8 oz fresh muchrooms, chopped (I used baby portabella) ~1 cup water EDIT: Bunch of chard (remember it reduces when cooked)
1. Cook lentils in a pot w/ vegetable broth as directed on package (~15 minutes for red) 2. Saute onions, garlic, and mushrooms - mix in quinoa - cook 5 minutes 3. Add above to pot w/ lentils - cover and cook 20 minutes. 4. Add water as needed so mixture doesn't stick. 5. Remove from heat. Shred chard and gently mix into pot. Cover and sit for 5 minutes.
