Quinoa and Veggie Filled Portabello

20140205-105606.jpg
This is one of the dishes I’ve eaten to help aide in the healing of my broken wrist bone. Mushrooms, kale, spinach, quinoa, and yellow peppers offer vitamins K, C, and D, magnesium, calcium, and protein- all the key nutrients for bone healing! I try to cook large batches of brown rice and quinoa so I have extra to eat later or simply freeze for a future meal. And that is what I did here.

Assembly:

I defrosted some quinoa and then sautéed some carrots, celery, kale, and garlic. These veggies were tossed with the quinoa, placed on the roasted Portabello from the previous night’s dinner (For the portabello I used olive oil, s&p, and balsamic vinegar and roasted it for 20 min at 400). I placed it in the microwave to heat through and then added some fresh yellow pepper to the top and served it on a bed of spinach. Voila!
