Quinoa and Mushrooms

Quinoa is a great protein and fiber source and contains a lot of beneficial vitamins and minerals. It is gluten-free and its glycemic index is much lower than brown rice. It is currently my best choice for grains.

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp sake or white wine (optional)
1 cup quinoa
4 cups assortment of mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp tamari
1/2 tsp salt
Fresh parsley for garnish, chopped


  1. In a pan, heat oil and sauté garlic.
  2. Add mushrooms and sake or white wine if using and sauté for a couple of more minutes.
  3. Add quinoa, 2 cups of water, tamari and salt. Mix and cover.
  4. Bring to boil and reduce heat. Cook until the water is all absorbed.
  5. Serve with chopped parsley on top.
