Instead of just serving up a boring old bowl of quinoa, I decided to have a little bit of fun with it and add in one of my all-time favorite veggies—mushrooms. Not only do they have an amazing distinct flavor but they also add a range of nutritional and health benefits right into your meal!

It’s so simple and comes together so easily – it’s practically fool-proof!
