I love a good mushroom risotto and had a craving, so I thought I'd try my luck with quinoa in replace of arborio rice. It was super delicious and definitely worth making!! Simple and full of flavour! I honestly surprised myself with how much it resembled a risotto
Get a decently deep saucepan and add olive oil, heat up on a low heat.
Dice up onion and mushroom, add the onion to the saucepan and cook until it's turned translucent - stirring to keep from burning
Add mushroom and grate garlic in with the onion - cook for a further 2 minutes or so, until the mushroom has started to saute
Add quinoa, stir until the quinoa is coated with all the flavors - about a minute, then add 1 cup of the stock, give a quick stir and put a lid on the saucepan (low to medium heat) - keep the extra stock if you're finding the liquid is evaporating to much or quickly, I ended up using all the stock
I would leave it for 5 minutes, then check it and stir, adding more liquid if needed - I did that about 3 times until it was cooked
Once cooked I added the pepper and some spring onion to the top
Some other yum options would be;
fresh bocconcini, saffron, chilli, thyme etc.
You could try heaps of variations!
Feel free to use water instead of stock, but I just wanted the added extra flavour.
