I've only recently starting eating Quinoa and I am loving it! If you're new to quinoa like me then this recipe is perfect for you, it only uses ingredients that I had in at home so it's perfect for those days when you can't be bothered to go shopping but don't want to skip on yummy & healthy food!

It's simple, nutritious and delicious!

  • A sprinkle of parsley or a pinch of fresh
Method:
  • Put your quinoa in a large saucepan and crumble in your stock cube
  • Fill the saucepan roughly half way full with boiling water
  • Bring the quinoa to boil and then simmer 
  • Once it's been cooking for 15 minutes put your mushrooms and onion in a steamer and place them on top of the saucepan
