I know. You’re probably rolling your eyes wondering what kind of click-bait I’ve led you to now, but this is not a drill. You really do only need three essential ingredients to create this creamy and flavour packed risotto.
We’re using quinoa, so you’re not going to need to slave over the stove as you would with regular risotto, and you get to reap the health benefits of adding quinoa to your diet!
You will need:
1 cup white quinoa
450ml vegetable stock
1 cup chopped mushrooms
Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat
Pour the quinoa into pan and stir gently for 1 minute
Add a splash of stock and stir until combined
Pour half of the stock in the pan and stir until stock has absorbed
Add the mushrooms and combine well with quinoa
Pour in the remaining stock and allow mixture to simmer for 8-10minutes, or until stock has absorbed
Serve immediately as is, or add fresh thyme to garnish.
