Adapted from the kitchen diaries II by Nigel Slater


20 g dried mushrooms
1 cup quinoa
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
300 g fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp tomato purée
salt and pepper


Cover the dried mushrooms with boiling water in a shallow bowl and set aside.
Cook the quinoa in 2 cups of water until tender, about 15 minutes, and set aside.
In a skillet, heat the oil and fry the onion until lightly browned. Add the garlic and fresh mushrooms and continue to cook until the mushrooms are well browned. Stir in the tomato purée, the quinoa and the mushrooms including their soaking liquid and cook for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
