Spinach Onion Tart

This was supposed to be kale but I used spinach.  The recipe was from one of McDougall's books which are usually good but this was really blah!  I should have followed my instincts and used more herbs and garlic in the veggies.  I would use my whole wheat pizza crust recipe next time, too.  This crust was made from scratch with whole wheat flour and yeast but no seasoning at all and  by the time it  browned was way too dried out.  It has potential so I'll try again some time.

With fresh green beans and some leftover quinoa I set out to make some soup and thought this one came out pretty good.

Bring to a boil in a 2qt saucepan:
 4c cut up fresh green beans, 1/2 c cut up celery, a large chopped onion and 3-4c water

Lower heat, add seasonings and simmer 30 minutes:
 2T Tamari, 1tsp dried basil, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 tsp celery seed, fresh ground black pepper

Add 1c. cooked quinoa
