Mushroom Garlic Quinoa
- 1 cup white quinoa (yields about 3 cups cooked)
- 1 tbsp olive oil*
- 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ tsp dried thyme
*May substitute with sacha inchi oil. Due to sacha inchi oil’s sensitivity to heat, we recommend cooking on low heat for 6-8 minutes in Step 2.
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1-2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese to garnish
(for a healthy alternative, try “cashew cheese“!)
Cooking your Quinoa
Rinse 1 cup uncooked white quinoa with cold water and a strainer.
Add uncooked white quinoa to a pot with 2 cups of water. May add salt to taste.
Bring to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover until water is absorbed, approximately 15-20 minutes.
