Today's recipe is as simple as it is delicious: a little shout-out to pasta, without the blood sugar spike-and-crash (and no waiting for water to boil!). 

This make a deliciously light spring time lunch (served cold), or you can warm up all the ingredients for a heartier dinner. Adjust bean: quinoa: kale ratio to taste (and hunger).

Grab the quinoa, white beans, and kale from your stock of pre-made goodies and get combining...

1. Massage kale with a little olive oil and garlic powder. Set aside.
2. Toss white beans with onion powder, oregano, thyme, and red pepper flakes. [Adjust amount of red pepper to taste - it's hot!]
3. Combine 1/2 cup of quinoa with parsley and a little olive oil. 
4. Combine massaged kale, beans, and quinoa. Top with vegan parmesan, if desired! 

Red Pepper Flakes

Last day of spicy fun tomorrow... Cajun!
