Mushroom Curried Quinoa with Tahini Sauce

I love Sautéed mushrooms and onions. I often pull out a skillet, toss in sliced onions and mushrooms, a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, you can add them as a side to many dishes. Sautéed mushrooms are one of the best and quick ways to cook mushrooms. Sautéed with onion they get a wonderful flavor.

I cook my quinoa in my Black and Decker rice cooker which I love, it’s simple and easy but you can simmer the quinoa in the mushroom broth on the stove. This dish is so full of flavor its one of my favorites. This recipe makes 2 healthy servings or 4 side servings.
