Cooking Instructions

Follow the prep technique next to each ingredient. In a small saucepan combine quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Cover and lower the heat to medium low (simmer). Cook until water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile sauté shallots and mushrooms in olive oil until they release most of their liquid; add the garlic, fresh herbs and carrots. Season with salt and crushed red pepper. Add the tomatoes, lemon juice and golden raisins. Fold in the steamed Swiss chard and bring to temperature. Combine quinoa with the Swiss chard-tomato mixture and serve warm.
