Garlic Mushroom & Spinach quinoa

You guys, I LOVE quinoa, like I would marry it if I could.  Ok, that is a bit extreme but I do love love love it! It's a great replacement for rice and just all around very healthy for you.  I made this dish the other night for dinner and while it's not very filling, it was so good.

Garlic Mushroom & Spinach Quinoa


2 cups water
1 cup quinoa
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup fresh spinach
6 cloves of garlic

Start by cooking your quinoa - mix 2 cups of water with 1 cup of quinoa in a saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover, for about 14 minutes, stirring frequently.

In a separate saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the mushrooms, spinach and garlic. Saute for about 5-7 minutes then add a dash of pepper and basil and mix in your cooked quinoa.

I added Parmesan cheese to mine and it was so delish!  Hope you enjoy this as much as me!
