Quinoa with Chard, Chickpeas & Tomatoes
Yet again I met up with my parents the other day to be presented with a massive bag of home grown rainbow chard, along with several very squishy tomatoes, that I was told needed eating very soon. So I turned to google for recipe inspiration on what to do with them both and came up with this concoction. As it contains both quinoa and chickpeas, the protein content is already fairly substantial, so doesn’t require the addition of meat to make it a complete meal, making it a great vegetarian dinner. I added some pan fried, crispy prosciutto purely because it needed using up and added a lovely crunchy texture to the dish, but it really isn’t necessary. Its a lovely filling bowl of food.
