Chicken, beef or fish; steamed, baked, roasted, grilled or sautéed with a cacophony of herbs and spices – check. It’s always that pesky potato or grain to serve it with that’s my oft-forgotten downfall! Enter 10-Minute Garlic and Herb Mushroom Quinoa https://bit.ly/2kk6AkJ to save the day. Great as a quick veggie meal on its own, too! #quinoa #protein #grain #herbs #sidedish
1tbsp olive oil
3 cups mushrooms, sliced thin (Button, Portobello or Portabellini)
1 small shallot or onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups cooked quinoa
salt and pepper to taste
½ cup chopped parsley
1 Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, shallot and garlic and sauté until mushrooms have softened and are starting to brown, about 3-5 minutes.
2 Add quinoa and cook until heated through, another 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Stir in parsley and serve immediately.
To make this a heartier dish, stir in some grilled chicken or a can of chickpeas.
