Portobello mushrooms are great as a side or lunch due to being so big and filling, top with this quinoa mix and you’ve got a healthy dish set, with added superfoods. Serves 1

All you need is

1 portobello mushroom

100g quinoa

1 tomato

¼ red onion

1 tablespoon melted butter

2 teaspoons garlic and herb cheese spread

½ garlic clove crushed

50g spinach

To make it just

Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions.

In a bowl place the spinach then top with hot quinoa mix well so the spinach wilts down. Add the crushed garlic, chopped tomato and red onion.  Mix in the cheese spread then add the melted butter. Mix all well then top the mushroom and cook for 20 minutes.

The reviews are in

Empty plates all round! I don’t like mushrooms myself so this was made for the family and they all loved it. I ate the quinoa without the mushrooms and was just as delighted.

I must add, this was small quinoa and it already had a small amount of seasoning, so it is worth checking it once it’s all cooked as you may need to add some additional flavours.

Overall, it was a delicious and light starter or accompaniment to a meal.
