thinly sliced cremini mushrooms
1 1/2 cups
quinoa, rinsed and drained
fresh thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons
freshly ground black pepper to taste
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.
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.
Thank you so much for this recipe, it is so tasty and healthy, I can't get enough of it! I added a little curry in the end and it gave it a delicious twist. Loved it!
