Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Quinoa contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains. It contains lysine. Lysine is mainly essential for tissue growth and repair. Black bean's fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, phytonutrient content and no cholesterol, all support heart health. Mushrooms are a good source or iron. They act as an anti-oxidant, boosts immunity and increases metabolism.

INGREDIENTS:
  • Quinoa (white,red,black)(uncooked) - 1 tbsp (15 g) 
  • Black beans - ½ tbsp (7-8 g) 
  • Bell peppers (red,yellow,green)(chopped) - 15 g 
  • Mushrooms (chopped)(optional) - 10 g
  • Garlic Cloves (crushed) - 1-2 
  • Dry basil/basil (minced) - ½ tsp 
  • Dried thyme - ½ tsp 
  • Feta cheese (optional) - 1 tsp (4 g) 
  • Vinegar - ½ tsp (2 g) 
  • Black pepper (grounded) - ½ tsp 
  • Salt to taste
DIRECTIONS:
