I present you another simple lunch recipe! I love making this because it takes minutes to prepare, I can make multiple portions ahead, and have lunches ready during the week. You can of course add in beans or extra vegetables, but it’s pretty good as it is. It’s super filling and so yummy!
Here is what you need:
- 8-10 oyster mushrooms
- 1 tbs tamari
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2 gloves garlic
- 2 green onion stalks
- 1 cup dried quinoa
- red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper to taste
Here is what you do:
- Rinse the quinoa under running water. Place it in a saucepan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and let simmer until all the water has been absorbed. Stir in 1 tsp coconut oil and add some salt and pepper if you like. Set aside.
- Cut the mushrooms length wise. Heat up 1 tsp of coconut oil in a saucepan and add the mushrooms. Stir until they are golden. Add in the tamari sauce, red pepper flakes, garlic and half the green onion. Give a quick stir until the tamari sauce is well absorbed. Remove from the heat.
- Place some quinoa in your plate and add some mushrooms on top. Garnish with the remaining green onions and enjoy!
This is clearly a very simple recipe, but it’s so delicious! It’s packed with delicious flavours and incredible textures. It makes the perfect lunch because you can eat it both cold or warmed up. The quinoa will keep you full for a while, so you’ll be able to run around all day. Finally, this is something you can prepare ahead of time to have ready to go when you need a flavorful and nutritious lunch. Let me know if you try it out!
