    Cookin' Mommy's Note:

    Quinoa is native to Peru and much like wheat with a subtle nutty flavor. It adapts well to a wide variety of seasonings and will be wonderful in this risotto. To serve as a main dish, double the portions. A healthy carb and low fat recipe adapted from Mayo Clinic. com's healthy recipe section.

      In a large saucepan over a medium flame, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and saute until it is soft and translucent, approximately 4 minutes. Add garlic and the quinoa and cook for approximately 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Do not let the garlic brown.

      Add stock to vegetables and quinoa, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer approximately 12 minutes or until quinoa is almost tender to the bite and slightly hard in the center.

      I was just getting ready to add this one myself from my offline collection. It is also in print in the book Source: The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook: Eating Well for Better Health by Cheryl Forberg and Maureen Callahan

      This was very easy to make and tasty! At first I was worried about the arugula since I don't really enjoy the taste when it's raw, but the flavor was subdued and great. I did bump up the mushrooms to a full cup since I just love mushrooms. I also added a little bit of cayenne pepper to spice it up a bit. I think next time I might add some celery.
