Shredded carrots and raisins add a little crunch and sweetness to this otherwise savory dish.
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/3 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
Lowfat cooking spray
2 3/4 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons chicken-flavored bouillon granules
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup shredded carrot
2 tablespoons raisins, chopped
1 Wash the Quinoa thoroughly to remove its bitter coating, drain and set aside.
2 Sauté mushrooms and green onions in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Set aside.
3 Bring 2 3/4 cups water, bouillon cubes, lemon rind and thyme to a boil in a large saucepan. Add quinoa and carrot. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
4 Stir in raisins and mushroom mixture. Serving Size: 1/2 cup.
