Prepare your mise en place: Quarter fennel, remove core and thinly slice crosswise. Remove kale stems, and chop finely; cut kale leaves into bite-size pieces. Peel, halve and thinly slice shallot. Pick and chop thyme leaves. Drain and rinse beans.
Place a large saucepot over medium heat. Add oil, fennel, shallot and kale stems. Cook, stirring intermittently, until shallot starts to become translucent, 4-5 minutes. Add thyme and cook 1 minute more.
Stir in quinoa. Add 4 cups water, dried tomatoes and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Bring mixture to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking on the bottom of the pot.
Stir in kale leaves, beans and enough water to just cover the ingredients (about 1 cup). Cover pot and cook 10-12 minutes, or until kale and quinoa are tender.
Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with PeachDish Salt. Divide between 2 bowls, and enjoy!
