Main Ingredients in Mushroom Quinoa

Although quinoa looks like a grain, it is actually a seed. This means that it is higher in protein and lower in starch than most grains. Quinoa is also gluten-free, so it is a terrific alternative to grains like wheat and barley for people who are sensitive to gluten. Quinoa is also great for vegetarians that are looking for more ways to get protein in their diet.

Mushrooms have an earthy, meaty texture so they are one of the best substitutes for meat in vegetarian dishes. I use sliced white button mushrooms to make this dish, but you can use whatever mushrooms you have on hand. Cremini mushrooms and Portobello mushrooms would work just fine in this recipe.

Kale is a great leafy green to incorporate into your diet because it is rich in Vitamins A, C and K and is also a good source of calcium. To prepare your kale, tear the leaves from the tough center stalk, then chop or shred the leaves.

The dish is finished with fresh shaved Parmesan cheese which gives it an added layer of richness. To shave your Parmesan cheese, use a vegetable peeler to make shavings or you can just grate it using a microplane grater.

    Wow! This one awesome dish which I can’t wait to give it a try, Alia! Do you always use fresh mushrooms for this recipe?

    1. Hey Agness! Thanks so much! I usually do use fresh mushrooms, but you can totally use canned mushrooms! I always have a few cans of mushrooms in my pantry to use when I don’t have fresh ones on hand. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the information on mushroom kale quinoa. I tried it. It is good and tasty. Quinoa is very healthy for the body. It has a high amount of fiber, antioxidants, and iron.
