Roasted Garlic Quinoa with Mushrooms

Roasted Garlic Quinoa with Mushrooms recipe
Roasted garlic, sauteed mushrooms and quinoa are tossed together in a hot skillet to create a memorable side dish (or main dish, if you're like me and it proves irresistible!) This is a recipe that might be overlooked initially, but once you've tasted it, it will become a fast favorite. I have some quinoa saved in the refrigerator right now, so that I can make this again this week!

Roasted Garlic Quinoa with Mushrooms
Yield: 2-3 servings, or 1 serving as a main dish

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced crimini mushrooms, I used 5 large mushrooms
1 head roasted garlic, about a tablespoon of roasted cloves
1 cup cooked quinoa, loosely packed
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper adjust to taste

Warm the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms, stir to coat and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Then leave them alone, allowing them to brown before stirring again. When the mushrooms are soft, move them to the edges of the pan and add the roasted garlic. Press the cloves with a wooden spatula to smash and warm them.

Add the quinoa and toss with the garlic and mushrooms. Add the remaining salt and pepper and adjust to taste. Enjoy!

  5. So easy! I sauteed the garlic instead of roasting and added some cooked chicken and a little Parmesan cheese at the end. Delicious!!!!
