Mushroom Thyme Quinoa

mushroom thyme quinoaI’ve made mushroom thyme quinoa yesterday for dinner, according to my opinion, quinoa taste good when you combine it with something cheesy, I don’t know, maybe because I love cheese :-), of course everybody has their own favorite how to prepare quinoa. On this recipe I mixed the quinoa with brown Champignon mushrooms and thyme, at the end I sprinkle it with grated cheddar cheese (look at the picture below). You can stir in the cheese together with the mushroom quinoa (at the end it looks like the picture above). You can also use grated gouda cheese or parmesan cheese.
