Wild garlic mushroom quinoa

Yours truly over here can easily earn the Miss Healthy 2018 title. Easily!


all you need is:

  • 1 shallot
  • 3 medium size king oyster mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 750 ml chicken stock
  • healthy bunch of wild garlic
  • salt
  • pepper

IMG_7849.jpgSounds familiar, right? This recipe was suppose to be a brown rice risotto but guess who was lazy enough NOT to spend 40+ minutes next to the pan and switched it to quinoa instead.

but with no further due,


  1. peel and finely chop the shallot;
  2. add it to a frying pan and cook it until translucent;
  3. cut the mushrooms and add it to the pan; season with a little bit of salt and pepper;
  4. once the mushrooms are cooked, add the quinoa and stir;
  5. add the white wine and cook until the alcohol evaporates;
  6. gradually stir in the chicken stock until the quinoa is cooked – or go lazy and add half of the chicken stock at once and once incorporated, the other half;
  7. when the quinoa is cooked and you got a creamy consistency of the dish, turn the heat off and add the chopped wild garlic.
