Cheesy, Italian-seasoned quinoa, mushrooms, and peppers – so flavorful and easy to whip up for dinner or a side dish!
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups uncooked quinoa
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 red pepper, diced
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste (I used about 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper)
1 cup shredded parmesan or Italian blend cheese
Add all ingredients except for Italian cheese to slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours on high, or 4-5 hours on low.
Stir all ingredients together. Top with cheese, cover and allow to cook for another 15 minutes or so until cheese is melty. Garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley if desired and serve.
