Nutrient packed "spaghetti"

Tonight for dinner I really needed something light. This type of dish has become an easy protein packed favorite.
One can diced tomatoed not drained
1 small can of tomato paste
Minced garlic to tast (i like tons of garlic!)
1\2 diced onion
Add your favorite veggies. I usually do broccoli, corn etc., tonight I finely chopped a few leaves of kale.
Salt, pepper. Add herbs such as basil, oregano, and thyme.
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
Let this all steam and simmer until the veggies are cooked and flavorful.
Put it over noodles, tonight I used spinach tofu "noodles" for a starch free light dinner.
Paired with a bit of cultured purple cabbage and a glass of dandelion tea. Yum!
