What Started it all:
Quinoa, Mushroom, spices (cumin, paprika, chili powder), grill

This warm and comforting dish combines the nutty flavor of quinoa with the earthy richness of mushrooms, all enhanced by a blend of aromatic spices. Perfect for a cozy dinner for four.


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 lb mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs (optional, for garnish)


  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove its natural coating, which can make it taste bitter.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed.
  3. Once cooked, fluff the quinoa with a fork and set aside.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  5. In a large bowl, toss the sliced mushrooms with olive oil, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper until evenly coated.
  6. Place the mushrooms on the grill in a single layer.
  7. Grill for about 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender and slightly charred.
  8. In a large serving bowl, mix the cooked quinoa with the grilled mushrooms.
  9. Adjust seasoning if necessary and garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
  10. Serve warm and enjoy!
