Quinoa Variation


2 cups chicken broth

1 cup of quinoa

1/2 can kidney beans 

1/2 can black beans

5-6 whole fresh mushrooms (sliced)

10-15 grape tomatoes cut in half

Small handful of shredded mozzarella cheese


1.  In a medium size pot, bring 2 cups of chicken broth to a boil.  Add in the quinoa and reduce heat to a simmer.

2.  After about 15 minutes (or until about 1/2 of the liquid has been absorbed) add in the kidney beans, black beans, mushrooms, and tomatoes.  

3.  Cook until all the liquid has been absorbed (about 30 total minutes).  Just before serving add in the mozzarella cheese and mix.
