Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa, Mushrooms and Peas with Miso

1 cup quinoa
1 cup carrots, diced
2 cups mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
4 teaspoons mellow white miso paste
3/4 cup frozen peas
1 cup sliced green onions
1 1/2 cups kale

Recipe Directions for Quinoa, Mushrooms and Peas with Miso

  1. Place quinoa in fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water until water runs clear. Drain quinoa and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, bring 1/2 cup water to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add carrots and cook about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, garlic and ginger. Cover and cook until mushrooms are tender and have released their liquid. Uncover and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until most liquid has evaporated. Add quinoa and stir 1 minute. Whisk miso into 2 cups water and add to quinoa. Bring to a simmer, then cover and continue simmering until quinoa is almost tender, about 12 minutes. Add peas, cover and continue cooking until quinoa grains are tender and liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl and stir in green onions. Serve immediately.
