2. Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pot saute baby spinach in the canola and olive oil.

3. Once spinach is softened add the seasonings and the tomato juice and bring to a slow boil.

4. By the time the quinoa cooks the tomato juice will boil down nicely. Add the quinoa to the spinach. Stir and serve with crusty bread.
