Ingredients

    1 cup quinoa
    1 Tbsp. olive oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup vegetable broth
    1 cup skim milk
    8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
    3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Directions

Rinse and drain quinoa three times, using a fine mesh strainer to remove the bitter outer coating.

Heat olive oil in a heavy saucepan or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft, stirring constantly. Add garlic and quinoa and continue stirring a minute or two. Stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until quinoa is tender, stirring occasionally, approximately 10-12 minutes.

Add mushrooms and cook another 3-5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add cheese and let stand a few minutes, so risotto can thicken.

Serves 6.
