Quinoa with Shitake Mushrooms and Snow Peas

Quinoa with Shitake Mushrooms and Snow Peas
  • 2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa
  • 6 sliced shitake mushroom caps
  • 1 cup sliced snow peas
  • 1 cup edamame
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds roasted with tamari
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

Saute the snow peas and shitake mushrooms for 5 minutes, set aside to cool. In a large bowl toss all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper. It can be served cold or hot. It's up to you. Quinoa is my all time favorite grain. It's considered the mother of all grains due to it's amazing benefits. Let me know what you think.

I have really been enjoying quinoa lately. I also just recently discovered edamame. This sounds pretty tasty and looks nice and fresh and green.

Hello chef, my first visit and I think your food looks tasty and very healthy. If you logg onto my site, you will soon see we are of carnivorous nature and can do with some healthier options some time.

I'm curious, have you been to culinary school? If so where did you go?

I'm interested in going... quiting the cube-jungle and following my passion!

I have a bag of quinoa sitting in my pantry and have yet to try it. This might be the recipe to get me going!
