Quinoa with Walnuts, Mushrooms and Raisins (print-friendly option)
I'm all about using what you have in your kitchen when it comes to recipes, so substituting is fine! Walnuts can easily be traded in for another nut or for toasted sunflower seeds if you can't do nuts. The mushroom broth can be replaced with any kind of broth you have on hand. If you don't have dried porcini mushrooms, use fresh mushrooms and skip the soaking step. No raisins on hand? Try dicing an apple and adding it in step two. Experiment with different types of herbs to see which is your favorite. I like parsley because it adds nice flavor here without overpowering the dish.
1/4 cup dried porcini mushrooms
1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
2 cups mushroom broth
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
Serves 4 as a side dish
