  • 250 g Quinoa
  • 500 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 500 g Chestnut Mushrooms
  • 200 g Kale
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
  • 15 g Mint
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Place the quiona in a deep saucepan and pour in the stock. Simmer for around 25 minutes with the lid off, until the quinoa is cooked and has formed a thick sauce.
  • Meanwhile roast the mushroom and kale. Slice the mushrooms into 1 cm pieces and roughly tear the kale into thumb sized florets. Place both in a oven pan, finely chop the garlic and sprinkle evenly over the top. Drizzle the olive oil over the oven dish and mix the vegetables well with a generous helping of salt and pepper. Finally, top with the a even dusting of the mustard power and roast in a 200˚c oven for 15 – 20 minutes, until the mushrooms are soft and kale crisp.
  • Serve the quinoa in individual bowls with the roast kale and mushroom heaped over each. Loosely chop the mint and sprinkle over each bowl, finish with a light sprinkle of paprika.
