I absolutely LOVE quinoa.  Love It!

Quinoa can be used in Sweet or Savory dishes.  I’ve eaten it for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and even Dessert!

Besides the quinoa, want to know why THIS recipe is so amazing!?!  Just look at the photo below.

Mushrooms.  Butter.  Roasted Garlic.

That is just the beginning.  Add cream and cheese to create this sinful side dish!

  1. Drool! I have been on a quinoa kick lately, and I am a huge mushroom fan. I need this right away!

  2. This was SO GOOD! Even my husband, who “hates quinoa” liked this. I subs. milk or the cream just because we didn’t have any. Delicious!

  3. Loved it! Thanks for sharing!

    can you make this ahead”

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Yes, this can be made ahead. It is at it’s best right away. The leftovers will bind a bit so when reheating add a splash of liquid to loosen it back up. Enjoy!

    This is my new favorite recipe! I put it in a casserole dish and place pan seared chicken breasts on top for an easy, complete, weeknight meal. I have honestly made it three times since discovering it a month ago and will be bringing it (sans chicken) as a new side dish to my family’s thanksgiving meal so that everyone can taste what I have been raving about the past month. Thank you very much for this simple, delicious, meal!
