  • 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

Step 1

Rinse 1 cup uncooked white quinoa with cold water and a strainer.

Step 2

Add uncooked white quinoa to a pot with 2 cups of water.  May add salt to taste.

Step 3

Bring to a boil.  Once at a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover until water is absorbed, approximately 15-20 minutes.


Prepare Your Mushroom Garlic Quinoa
