Naked Recipe: Bean + Pomegranate Bowl
Yield: 4-5 servings. Recipe developed by the Naked Food Chefs.
- 1 cup organic quinoa
- 2 cups organic vegetable broth
- 1 cup kidney beans, rinsed, soaked overnight
- ¼ cup chives, chopped (optional)
- ¼ cup walnuts, chopped
- ½ cup pomegranate seeds
- ¼ cup organic spinach, chopped
- ¼ tsp. non-gmo miso paste
Soak beans overnight. Drain water, rinse, and replace with 3 cups of fresh cold water for cooking. Place on stove and bring to a boil (for at least 10 minutes) in a pot with a lid. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, tilting lid slightly to allow steam to escape, and leave to cook for up to 90 minutes, or until tender.
At the same time, bring 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of vegetable broth to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 – 25 min. until the quinoa tail is visible, and the water is absorbed. Let sit covered for 5 minutes and fluff with fork. Makes 2 ½ cups.
Add drained kidney beans and quinoa to a large bowl. Mix in chives, miso, spinach. Serve and sprinkle walnuts and pomegranates on top.
