I am SO excited for Thanksgiving this year! My Mom's stuffing is my favorite part about the whole meal, but love the turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie too! Today's recipe is a new one to add to your Thanksgiving menu! It's hearty, earthy and super flavorful!
This Mushroom Garlic Quinoa is a new favorite at our house, My daughter picks out the mushrooms, but she empties her plate every time. This side has tons of nutrients, and is so filling. In fact, you could also use it as a meatless main dish, or even add in some chopped chicken breast for a complete meal!
Quinoa is a newer favorite of mine. I love the flavor, texture and how versatile it is! I stocked up with a few bags when I found it at Aldi a couple weeks ago. It was very reasonably priced, and it's a great food to have in your pantry for winter recipes. Keep an eye out for more recipes sometime soon!
