Spinach and Mushroom Quinoa

3 Comments

This is on of my favorite side dishes to make.  Sometimes I even add some grilled chicken and eat it for lunch.  I love it because it is simple to make, only has a few ingredients and is packed with protein, fiber, iron, magnesium, B2, folate, calcium, zinc, Potassium, and Vitamins K and A (to name a few!!!). Did you know that quinoa contains more vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants than any other grain? It does!  Spinach and mushrooms also contain abundant nutrients so you can’t go wrong with this dish!  Here’s the recipe:
