  • 1.5 cup home-made chicken stock
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese


  1. Rinse the quinoa in water a few times.
  2. Soak the porcini mushrooms in warm water for half and hour.
  3. Take olive oil in a pan, saute the onion and the garlic together. Do this on a low flame and don't brown the garlic.
