Quinoa with Mushrooms and White Wine

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

2 cups white quinoa
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 pound button mushrooms cleaned  and chopped
4 tablespoons  olive oil
2 cups dry white wine (like Chardonnay , Sauvignon blanc or Pinot Grigio)
1-2 teaspoons salt (to taste)

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium pot, add the quinoa and stir. Add 3 cups of water and 1 cup white wine, cover leaving open a crack and bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid is totally absorbed. Set aside and let stand for 10 minutes.

While the quinoa is cooking, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan, sauté the onion and mushrooms until the onion is soft and translucent ( 5-7 minutes). Add the wine,  bring to a simmer and let cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, ( 5-7 minutes).

Mix the mushrooms and onion into the quinoa and serve hot.
