quinoa & mushroom cream sauce

Posted on

Good Morning!

I hope you all survived Irene and are revved up and ready to go for a new work week. Many schools start today, too! Wow, just think of where I was a year ago. Oh the changes we go through.  Anyway, I made this pretty spectacular dish that wasn’t very pretty. I just had to say it because I know you were thinking it. Well, don’t judge a book by its cover…This dish might not look like it is going to rock your world, but it was PRETTY darn good.

In the mix:

  • cooked quinoa
  • mushroom cream sauce
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • pine nuts
  • scallions as a garnish

How to make “Mushroom Cream Sauce

What cha need:

  • 1 package baby bella mushrooms
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 to 2 T half and half or light creamer

How to create:

  1. Saute one package of baby bella mushrooms in oil and garlic until tender and water is released from shrooms.
  2. Pour mushrooms and liquid into food processor.

  5. Place on top of grain of your choice —-> mine was quinoa
