Quinoa & Mushroom Sauté

Instead of rice or potatoes as your ‘go-to’ side dish (which you should probably limit since it’s loaded with sugary starches), try quinoa. Quinoa on its own can be pretty bland, but mix it with a few key ingredients and veggies and you’ve got a deliciously savory side dish.

MushroomQuinoaSaute1Cook quinoa according to package directions, set aside. In a large skillet heat oil and sauté mushrooms until golden. Add in garlic, thyme, and balsamic vinegar. Stirring until garlic is fragrant.
MushroomQuinoaSaute2Add in cooked (and drained) quinoa, stirring until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with cheese if desired.
