Recipe: Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

Recently, I posted about a recipe I tried out from the book "Quinoa 365" . I am revisiting this book, as there another recipe I road tested that turned out to be a winner. I picked up the red quinoa from a health food shop.

What you will need:
3 tbsp quinoa (use red or black if you can, as the colour contrast looks great)
6 tbsp water
20-25 white button mushrooms
1-2 tbsp olive oil
quarter cup minced onion (optional)
3 tbsp fresh finely chopped parsley
quarter tsp dried oregano

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Thoroughly rinse and bring quinoa and water to boil in a small saucepan. Cover, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 mins. Turn off heat and leave on burner for another 4 mins. Fluff with fork and allow to cool.

Gently twist stems off mushrooms and finely dice. Saute stems in oil, with onion (if using) for about 3-4 mins. Allow to cool.

Stir quinoa, parsley and oregano into mushroom and onion mixture. Using a teaspoon, scoop the filling into the mushroom caps and place on baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes until mushrooms are tender.
