DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • To the brothy mixture stir in the arugula, carrot and mushrooms. Simmer this until quinoa grains have turned from white to translucent, approximately 2 minutes longer.
  • Stir in cheese, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
