Method

Warm oil on medium heat and add onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and peppers. Sauté the mixture for 5-8 minutes until vegetables are soft. Add veggie broth, sweet potato, beans, tomatoes, tomato paste and spice mix. Bring to a gentle simmer stirring frequently. When the sweet potatoes are soft enough to put a fork through, add the mushrooms and quinoa. Simmer for 10-15 more minutes. Simmer even longer to really soften veggies and develop the flavor. Add greens at the end for a minutes until wilted. Serve with a salad or over rice. It’s really good over spaghetti squash too!
