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.
