This simple Spinach Mushroom Quinoa is a delicious clean eating side dish or even great as a meal in itself when you add chicken as well!
Spinach Mushroom Quinoa
This is one of those recipes that was just “created” with a few of my favorite ingredients. (Pretty much just like Egg White Scramble) Funny how I do that. You can never go wrong with onion, mushrooms and spinach in any recipe in my opinion!
What I love about this dish is that it not only makes a fabulous side dish but it also can be a meal in itself. You can add chicken to this for a wonderful dinner as well. Perfect time to use your frozen crockpot chicken quickly.
I eat it for lunch a lot during the summer just because it is so easy to make and have ready to eat for a few days. 🙂
