Kale and Quinoa Resolution Stew

This stew is perfect for the aftermath of the holiday season. If you didn't get your monthly dose of kale and quinoa in December, no worries. If you've never consumed any of dose of kale or quinoa, also no worries. January is the month to make up for it.

What did I use and why?

I used Better than Bouillon's No-Chicken soup base for the vegetable broth. This broth is particularly savory and makes a bowl of vegetables taste a lot more exciting than it really is.
