From the courier mail 'body and soul' lift out. Another 'yet to be tried' recipe.

- 3⁄4 cup quinoa
- 1 tablespoon miso
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons arrowroot or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch

- 1 cup parsley
- Sauté onion, green onions and garlic in the olive oil for 2 minutes until the onion is translucent. Add the mushroom and sauté for 5 minutes.
- Add the stock and half the pine nuts and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
- While the mushrooms are cooking, rinse the quinoa in water then add it to the pan with 2 cups of water.
- Bring to the boil then reduce the heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the grain is tender and the water is absorbed.

- Pour the mushroom mix into an ovenproof dish. Top with quinoa and back in an oven for 20 minutes at 160°C.
- Serve with stir fried spinach or Asian greens.
Fantastic!! I made this but omitted the parsley, filled up hollowed out kaiser rolls with it, and topped it with a some parmesan and gouda cheese. Threw it in a 350F oven for about 5 minutes. Delish! I also used 2 cups of pre-cooked quinoa, and omitted the 1.5 cups of water.
Really great tasting! I was expecting a "pie" to be more like something sliceable, and this isn't that. It's more like quinoa with mushroom sauce. Nothing wrong with that, just know what to expect. Thanks LaniD!
