Quinoa with Mushrooms and Ginger

Adapted from Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian


1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 pound mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and diced
1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable stock or water


In a skillet, heat the olive oil, add the mustard seeds and fry until they pop. Add the mushrooms and ginger. Fry until well browned, stirring frequently. Add the quinoa, a dash of salt and the liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside for another 10 minutes.

Mmm... this looks wonderful. I have a big bag of quinoa in my pantry and this looks like a wonderful way to use some of it. Happy Holidays! ;-)
