This recipe is so delicious. I came up with it one night when I needed to think of a side to serve and had some quinoa cooking in the microwave. As I started to slice mushrooms to sauté, I was laboring over how to prepare the quinoa and then it hit me… combine the two! We’ve all heard the success stories about weight loss with quinoa; I don’t know if they’re all true, but I know that this was fantastic!
This butter garlic mushroom cooked quinoa can be served as a side dish (even for kids) of a vegetarian or vegan meal. Just use vegetable stock instead of chicken!
