  1 rater(s)

Quinoa is one the world’s most popular health foods because it is high in protein and gluten-free. Not many plant-based foods have that quality! Not only does it contain all nine essential amino acids, but it is also rich in B-vitamins, iron, fiber, vitamin E, potassium, and calcium.

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 15m
  • Total Time: 20m


  • 1 1/2 c quinoa
  • 2 c filtered water
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 c spinach, rinsed
  • 2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Add the quinoa and water to a medium or large saucepan. Cook as directed, which typically is 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can cook the quinoa in the rice cooker, but this may require a different amount of water.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, warm the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, mushrooms, spinach, soy sauce, and garlic powder and sauté for about 3-4 minutes, tossing frequently.
  3. Spoon the cooked quinoa into the pan of veggies and cook until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  4. Season with sea salt and pepper and serve immediately.
