Quinoa is often referred to as a grain, but it’s actually a seed. Originating from the Andean region of Peru, it has long been prized for its high protein content, which makes it perfect for a plant-based diet. Naturally gluten free, Quinoa is a rich source of B vitamin and folate. In this recipe, it completes the stuffed mushroom and balances the sundried tomatoes. Happy cooking!


  • 0.5 Cups of White Quinoa
  • 6 Portobello Mushrooms
  • 0.5 Cups of Sundried Tomatoes
  • 5 Tablespoons of Pesto
  • 0.5 Cups of Grated Pizza Cheese
  • 1 75 Gram Pack of Baby Spinach
  • 1 Tablespoons of Balsamic Dressing

Step-by-step instructions

Step 1

Cook Quinoa:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Rinse quinoa under cold water using a fine mesh strainer. Place quinoa, 1 cups water, and pinch salt in a medium pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until water has evaporated and quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat, cover, and set aside.

Step 2

Roast Mushrooms:

Wipe outside of mushrooms caps with a damp paper towel. Scoop out gills from inside with a spoon and discard. Place mushrooms cap side up on a foil lined baking tray and drizzle over olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast until browned and almost tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Step 3

Make Stuffing:

Meanwhile, finely chop sun-dried tomatoes. Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes, cooked quinoa and pesto to a large bowl and stir to combine.

Step 4

Stuff Mushrooms:

Flip over mushroom caps on baking tray and fill with quinoa stuffing. Top with cheese and roast until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 15-20 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

Step 5

Make Salad:

Meanwhile, rinse baby spinach and pat dry with paper towel. Add baby spinach to bowl and toss to coat.

Step 6

You Plate It:

Divide salad evenly between plates. Top with stuffed mushrooms, allowing the spinach to wilt slightly. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
