Quinoa with Mushrooms and Spinach

This recipe includes many of my favorite ingredients and a fair share of ingredients packed with important nutrients. If you don’t have quinoa on hand, you could use rice as a substitute.

Double the recipe. The leftovers tend to taste even better than it does fresh off the stove.
