Mariana's Hearty Quinoa Recipe


* 2 tbsp. olive oil
* 1/2 onion, diced
* 1/2 carrot, cut into small circles
* a handful of fresh mushrooms, diced
* 1 cup whole-wheat quinoa
* 2 cups vegatable or chicken broth
* 1 tbsp. garlic powder or crushed garlic
* a pinch of salt and pepper

Heat the olive oil on a small/medium saucepan over medium-hi heat. Stir in the onions, mushrooms, garlic and carrots. Saute until lightly browned. Mix in quinoa and cover with broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and let stand for a couple of minutes. Serve with a fresh salad and side dish of your choice!
