Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

3 tbsp Quinoa
6 tbsp water
20 mushrooms
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup onion, minced
1/4 cup almonds, ground
3 tbsp parsley
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

  1. Preheat oven to 400F

  2. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and leave the covered saucepan on the burner for another 4 minutes. Remove from burner, fluff with fork and allow the quinoa to cool.

  3. Remove mushrooms stems, and finely dice. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and saute the stems and onions on medium low heat until the onion is opaque and tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  4. Stir in the quinoa, almonds, parsley and oregano into the mushroom and onion mixture. Using teaspoon, scoop the filling into the mushroom caps and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve warm.
