i just made this, and i'm so full!

fill a very deep frying pan about 1/2 or less with with water (about 4 cups maybe more)
drop in a wyler's chicken boullion cube
drop in 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
turn on flame and just go on about your business stirring occasonally

then add:

5 cups kale (one whole head chopped up)
1 green onion, chopped
1 zucchini
garlic powder, salt, pepper, some nutritional yeast if you're into that

cook until kale is desired softness, stirring occasionally

i don't cook very long because i like it a little crunchy.

it makes a big huge bowl for only about 370 calories
use less water for less soupy effect, but i like to drink the broth.

10g of protein!
52% of your daily calcium!!
48% of your daily iron
very few dirty dishes!
quick and simple!

all in one meal for under 400 cal

and it's vegan
