Fantastic and easy recipe. We've been looking for a simple quinoa recipe and this is it!
We don't keep shallots and cremini mushrooms in stock so I substituted white onions and white mushrooms and itt turned out to be quite tasty.
As the other review stated, it could have used about half the salt.
Thanks for this recipe!
Very tasty! I'm so glad hubby liked this! Miracle! If you are sensitive to salt, I'd start out with a little less salt because you can always add more. I thought it bordered on being just a little salty---which could be because even though I did use a good organic version of vegetable stock, it may have contained more salt than I figured on (I really need to make my own---note to self). I may have added a touch more mushrooms and shallot than it called for, but that's normal for me. Very good! Thanks!
great stuff, fabulous taste, but I used commercial vegetable broth, and even omitting the added salt this was waaaay salty!!!! Next time I'll try reduced sodium chicken broth instead, because it was simple enough and tasty enough to merit extra chances and experimentation.
geez-owie is this good. was looking for a vegetarian potluck recipe and this fit the bill. only changes I made are to omit the added salt (not needed if your stock is flavorful), used shitake instead of cremini (it's what my shroom vendor had), and I added toasted slivered almonds at the end. Next time I will use less liquid, as it was too moist (my normal quinoa recipe calls for less than 2:1 water to grain, so I should have held back). Other than that, great! and it dried out overnight to a better consistency. I can see this being a go-to recipe because of all its healthy ingreds (3 of the GBOMBS!). No reason not to increase the mushroom and shallot amounts. Also, I think any sliced shrooms will do fine.
I didn't even add the onions, and it turned out to be very tasty. I didn't have rice, so I chose this recipe. It beats rice by far.
Very easy, fast and delicious. Even my little kids loved it!
Yummy! Hubby and I are trying to eat healthy and this is a great alternative to pasta or white rice. Followed the recipe, except used only 1 teaspoon salt. Can't wait to add some extra veggies to the leftovers and have a totally different dish tomorrow. It made enough for both of us to eat again tomorrow.
This dish was excellent and made more than I expected. Next time though, I would cut the salt in 1/2.
