    3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

    1½ cups cooked salt-free canned dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

    1/2 cup vegetable broth

    6. - Add the kidney beans and the 1/2 cup of vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 8 minutes.
    7. - Add the chard, stirring to wilt/ Simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes longer.
    8. - To serve, spoon the quinoa into shallow bowls and top with beans and vegetables. Serve hot and enjoy!
