This recipe makes 6 servings
Ingredients:
  • • 8 ounces mushrooms, finely diced
  • • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • • 8 stalks kale, cut into small pieces (~4 cups kale, chopped in small pieces)
  • • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix (store-bought or try my Taco seasoning blend)
  • • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • • 2 cup cooked quinoa
  • • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • • ½ to 1 cup 2% cheddar cheese, shredded
Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375˚.

Coat large skillet or pot liberally with nonstick olive oil spray. Add mushrooms, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add red pepper and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, then add kale, along with taco seasoning, and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off heat and add the black beans. Stir in the cooked quinoa.

Transfer to an oven-safe baking dish, mix in the egg and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake in oven for about 10 minutes, then broil for a few extra minutes to brown and bubble the cheese.
