Spinach and Mushroom Quinoa with Pine Nuts

I sub many of the ingredients in this quinoa with whatever I have on hand usually.  I am diligent to use organic ingredients as much as possible, especially during the cleansing period.  This is a very easy meal. After everything is chopped, the cook time is only 15-20 mins.

Serves 4-6

3 Tbsp avocado or olive oil

4 cloves garlic, chopped

3 Tbsp fresh ginger, finely grated

1.5 cups celery, chopped

1 sweet onion, cut in pieces

Salt, pepper, and turmeric to taste

1 box of baby bella mushrooms (crimini), cut in pieces

4 cups fresh spinach (or 2 cups frozen), chopped

1 cup pine nuts

1 cup cherry tomato (or equivalent), cut in half

3 cups of water or vegetable broth

In a large saucepan, sauté the celery, onion, mushrooms, spinach, garlic, ginger, and spices in avocado or olive oil.  I like to sauté the garlic, ginger, onion and celery for a min, then add the mushrooms for a min, then the spinach.  Next, add the pine nuts for a min.  Then add the chopped tomato for a min.  Pour in the 3 cups of water or broth and bring to a boil.  Add the quinoa, cover and simmer for 10 mins or until the quinoa absorbs all the liquid.  Carefully lift the lid and fluff the quinoa.
