spinach mushroom quinoa

spinach mushroom quinoa || Journey for JessiThis is such a simple, yet filling clean meal to cook.  I have been making A LOT of quinoa dishes lately, mostly because quinoa is a great vegan protein source and fills me up!  It is also so easy to make on my meal prep Sundays and store for the week.  Sometimes (a majority of the times), it is difficult for me to get a good “after” picture of my recipes.  This is attributed to my tendency to take tastes (eat the entire thing) before I snap a pic.  That just means it’s that good right?

Ingredients

♦ ½ c uncooked quinoa

♦ 1 c water

♦ 2-3 c fresh, baby spinach

♦ 3-4 baby bella mushrooms
