  • cups quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced or finely grated
  • 2 medium to large bunches Swiss chard stems removed and discarded, leaves chopped
  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher or fine sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Combine the quinoa and water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is fluffy, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the Swiss chard in batches, stirring to wilt it down between additions. When all of the chard has been added and wilted down, stir in the chickpeas, cumin, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for a few minutes to heat through.
  • Serve the quinoa in bowls and top with the Swiss chard mixture.
