Spinach Mushroom Quinoa

What I love about quinoa is that it not only makes a great different side dish but it also can be a meal in itself.

I whipped up this little yummy for a clean lunch to have for the next few days.

You can add chicken to this for a wonderful dinner as well. Perfect time to use your frozen crockpot chicken quickly:-)


1 cup of quinoa, cooked per package

2 TBSP of coconut oil or olive oil

4 cloves of garlic

1 large onion, chopped

12 oz of mushrooms, sliced

16 oz of fresh spinach

1 TBSP of balsamic vinegar


Cook quinoa per package directions

Heat the oil in a large saute pan.

Add garlic an onions and saute for about 5 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and balsamic vinegar. Cook for about 10 minutes or until cooked down substantially.

Then add the spinach and cover. Cook until wilted stirs often.

Add the quinoa and toss to mix thoroughly.

Serve hot.

What great timing – we have a giant flat of mushrooms that I’ve been working my way through the past two weeks and I’ve been trying to come up with something new to do with them. I’ll be making this tonight!

I love your quinoa recipes. I am so simple with my quinoa prep and as a result I don’t make it as often as I would like. I love mushrooms so I am eager to try this dish.

This sounds delicious! We already love quinoa, but I usually cook it the same 2 ways… have been wanting to try something new, and this looks perfect! Glad I found you at Titus 2sdays! :)
