Ingredients


1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
1 Pound Button Or Other Mushrooms, Sliced
1 Shallot, Minced
½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt, To Taste
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1 cups quinoa
1½ Cups Vegetable Broth Or Water
½ Lemon, Juiced
Pepper To Taste

Directions


  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, shallot, salt, and oregano and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms have released most of their liquid, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, until the grains are toasted. Stir in the broth or water and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 12-14 minutes, until the grains are tender.
  3. Turn off the heat and stir in the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
