GV comments:  This delicious and easy entree has eye appeal as well as significant health benefits. Quinoa offers protein and fiber, and the Swiss chard contributes Vitamins K, C, and A, along with magnesium and potassium. The gorgeous colors of Swiss chard can be color-coordinated with the season -- I love the red-stemmed variety during the winter holidays. The additional tastes of kalamata olives, pine nuts, garlic, and golden raisins make this a clear winner. 

Timing: About 40-45 minutes, start to finish

Nutrition: Whole-food unprocessed if you water-saute instead of use the 2 teaspoons of oil, but quite healthy even if you use the oil.

Gluten-free
