Quinoa Mushroom 'Risotto' Recipe
Take the fuss out of making risotto by replacing the rice, as this recipe does in mixing quinoa with sauteed vegetables.
Awesome and easy! I didn't use oil when cooking quinoa and skipped the optional parmesan, it's tasty enough without it. Didn't add any salt per another reviewer, it's easy to add later if wanted. If you're using parmesan it adds a salty taste. This could be made vegan with Not So Chicken broth cubes and homemade cashew parmesan. Asparagus or pea pods would be a nice addition later in cooking. Edit: After making this a few times I decided to cook the peppers and onions less. The peppers in particular benefit from still having crunch. Read that some like to use coconut oil because it will give a "velvety" texture that you generally will only get from saturated fat (meat). It definitely seems to add something. Worth trying if you've been substituting another oil like I was.
Quinoa simmered in vegetable stock with brown mushrooms and fresh herbs makes a delightful side dish for a holiday meal.
Delish!! I forgot to put in the salt to taste and realized that it didn't need it. I will definitely make this one again! Yummm!
i used chicken broth not the bullion. my son who has been an anti mushroom fella. Dont get me wrong he is a funguy. but anyway. He loved it.
