Ingredients

  • 180 grams Quinoa rinsed
  • 500 ml Stock I used 500ml water and 2 teaspoons of bouillon stock powder
  • 1 handful Frozen Spinach approximately 4 blocks
  • 300 grams Mushrooms
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 large handful Fresh Parsley roughly chopped – optional

Instructions

  1. Clean and quarter the mushrooms before placing them into a non stick pan with the olive oil.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes over a medium/high heat.
  3. After 5 minutes, turn off the heat and mince/grate in the garlic. Stir to combine.
  4. Place the rinsed quinoa into a saucepan with the stock and frozen spinach. Add the mushrooms and garlic and turn on the heat.
  5. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally to break up the spinach.
  6. Once bubbling, cover with the lid and turn the heat down to low. Cook for 15 minutes.
  7. Check on the quinoa in the last 5 minutes, stirring to ensure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
  8. Once cooked, allow to cook a little before serving and topping with the roughly chopped parsley.
