White Truffle Oil Quinoa

truffle quinoa

This delicious and decadent rendition on skinny super food quinoa is a great on the go snack or lunch during the week as well as a wonderful side dish for any dinner. I personally love putting this under a piece of balsamic glazed salmon! Yummm! Quinoa is SOOO good for you that you could eat it every day and with a little creativity, not get too tired of it. This recipe is so simple, it’s great when you want to make a large batch and take some to work with you during the week or if you just don’t want to be slaving over the oven for hours to make dinner.


1/2 bag of baby spinach
1/4 cup of quinoa
1/2 cup of water
2 tbsp of White Truffle Oil
5 or 6 of your favorite mushroom (I used baby bella)

Put your quinoa and water in a saucepan on the stove and boil. Keep mixing around the quinoa till the water eventually dissolves, once your pan is pretty much just quinoa, turn off the burner. In a separate frying pan, drizzle 1 tbsp of white truffle oil and add in your baby spinach and chopped mushrooms. Sautee for a little till spinach has wilted a bit. Now, mix in your cooked quinoa and let it cook for a few more minutes before adding a final tbsp of White Truffle oil to the mix and then serving. Simple and delicious! Enjoy!
