Directions

Rinse the quinoa a couple of times if you did not buy the pre-soaked quinoa.

I cleaned the portobello mushroom caps gently. Removed the stems and chopped them up and put aside to add to my spinach. Place in micro wave safe dish and pre-cook the mushroom caps for 3 minutes.

Cook quinoa in 1 cup of water or broth. I used the broth my mushrooms gave off when I micro waved to pre-cook them.

Saute the 6 garlic cloves in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil.

Add spinach and cook. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place the cooked spinach and cooked quinoa in a bowl. Mix till thoroughly mixed.

I used 2 small casserole dishes and put each of the portobello mushroom caps in the bottom. I spooned the quinoa mixture on top of both mushrooms. as it makes a good size portion of mix. Thus the small casserole dishes for each serving.

Sprinkle the shredded mozzerella chees on top.

Bake in oven 400 degree oven till cheese melts and mixture heats through.
