A really hearty lunch

One of the great things about kabocha squash is that you don't need to peel it. Eat the skin! It's full of beta-carotene, iron, and vitamins.

How to Make It

1. In a large stockpot, warm oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and bay leaves and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 5 minutes.

2. Add squash to pot and cook, stirring often, until it begins to develop some color, about 8 minutes. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Raise heat to medium- low, add quinoa and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Stir in Bragg Liquid Aminos and kale and heat just until kale has wilted slightly. Serve immediately.
