1. To make the spinach mushroom quinoa skillet: Cook quinoa in salted water until al dente, according to the package instructions.

2. In the meantime, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the quartered mushrooms and sauté for about 3 minutes until lightly browned.

3. Add the chopped garlic and cook for about 30 seconds longer. Then deglaze with a bit of vegetable broth. Reduce the heat and cook for about 1-2 minutes longer. Remove mushrooms to a plate and set aside.

4. In the same skillet, add minced onion and cook for one minute, until transluscent. Add the spinach and cook for 2 minutes until wilted. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

5. Once the quinoa is ready, pour off the cooking water. Push spinach on the side in the skillet and add mushroom back, then put cooked quinoa in the pan and toss to combine. Add parmesan, red chili pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning and give a quick stir. Serve the spinach mushroom quinoa with red chili pepper flakes and more parmesan, if you like. Enjoy!

Tips for the spinach mushroom quinoa recipe

This spinach mushroom quinoa recipe with parmesan is an easy, healthy main dish that you’ll want to make with every single meal! Here are a few tips to make it even better!

  • Feel free to use different mushrooms to enrich the taste of quinoa: shiitake, portobello, cremini… We like shiitake because of its meaty texture and subtle flavor.
  • Use a good quality olive oil because it adds a lot to the flavor of this quinoa dish.

Can we freeze the quinoa with spinach and mushrooms?

We don’t suggest this quinoa recipe for freezing. The sauce will get absorbed into the quinoa, leaving it dry. If you reheat refrigerated leftovers, you may want to add a little olive oil to compensate for what has been absorbed into the quinoa while sitting in the refrigerator.

    I thought this was a little flavorless. It needs something to spice it up maybe along the line of cumin.
