    LizAnn's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe I found in a store magazine. I had these today and they were yummy, not to mention healthy. Quinoa contains 5g of protein, 3g of fiber and only 1g of sugar per 1/4 cup and its also very low fat. Try it!

      This is a very tasty recipe. The first time I made it, it did not come out so well. The quinoa was undercooked. I suggest using cooked quinoa by the directions on the package you buy it in and then mix all of the other ingredients together. The picture used on this recipe is not too appitizing. I suggest you take a new one and shape the filling as though it were ice cream on top of a cone. Besides those details the flavor is amazing. I love mushrooms, so this dish was a thumbs up. If you put the stuffing in smaller mushrooms you can use them as appitizers. My dad is a very picky eater, but just like me, he loves mushrooms, so he loved this recipe. I got him to eat quinoa! I am so glad that this is not only tasty, but also very healthy. Quinoa has all the same nutrients as meat, so it is the perfect substitution and vegetarian friendly. Of course I am not, but I always tell my vegetarian friends about the benefits of quinoa.

      I'm not usually one to make mushrooms like this but did so for my other half who loved them! I did change 1 thing, though, since my vegetarian son & DIL were here for lunch ~ I used a vegetable broth instead of the chicken kind! Wouldn't mind making these again when we have company again!

      Very interesting. DH gave it a 5, I gave it a 3. One of DH co-workers turned him onto Quinoa. This is easy to prepare and is good for you. It has 1.5 WW points. I didn't find it very flavorful but it was good. I will be making this again. Thanks LizAnn for posting.
