Mushroom & Kale Quinoa Risotto

Ok ok,

I’ve been promising this recipe for awhile!!  It’s SO tasty!! Enjoy


Ingredients  *everything is approximate I just threw everything together.

3/4 cup dry quinoa (rinsed)

1 – 2 cups sliced mushrooms (I just used white ones)

as much kale as you like

1/4 cup walnuts – chopped

1/4 white onion chopped

1 tsp dried savoury or herb of choice

2+ cups broth (I used chicken)


Sauté onions and mushrooms until onions are translucent.


Add in quinoa and 1/2 cup broth


Simmer on medium until all broth is sucked up (yes that’s a technical term)

Add another 1/2 cup of broth stirring until broth is gone again… continue in 1/2 cup

Add in kale, walnuts and savoury  - stir until combined and kale is slightly steamed


Add in salt and pepper to taste!

Serve warm or also is great as a cold left over!


So creamy and delicious!!


This was such a fantastic meal!!! Hearty and filling!!


I think next time I might use these…


And use the water from soaking them as the broth!! (YUM! and so nutritious!)


As I have mentioned a few times, this recipe came as an inspiration from someone elses blog, so if this was yours, please let me know, so I can give you kudos!!


Have a great day today – are you up to anything fun??

I’m doing homework, a few wedding things and then hopefully ZUMBA!

  1. This looks really good. I am definitely going to make it! And I am lactose intolerant, so this is just perfect. :)

  2. That's what I'm talkin' about! I love it! I bet the walnuts add an amazing depth... and looking here I have everything to make this (I only have a couple stalks of kale left though, so I might have to use some spinach too)... I think I just found dinner for tonight!

  3. yes, walnuts are a good add! I'll have to try this with my GF risotto!

  4. I want this for dinner! Mmmm... Looks fabulous! I love all of the ingredients you've used!

  5. Hearty and winter warming. Just what I like!

  6. that meal is "so me." esp. if you used the dried shitakes - i have some in my pantry right now i don't know what to do with!!!

  7. I just made this for lunch and it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

  8. Could I use bone booth instead of chicken booth?
