Meatless Monday Mushroom Quinoa Risotto

Actually this particular "Meatless Monday" dish happened on Saturday, and tonight I have a vegetarian curry in mind - Cauliflower, Sweet Potatoes & Swiss Chard with some Jalfrezi paste.  But I'm getting ahead of myself... as usual.

Everybody seems to be getting on the "Meatless Monday" bandwagon.  And even we carnivores recognize the value in eating less meat.  But in our house it's a challenge.  I need to CHEW!!! and somehow vegetarian dishes don't usually do it for me.

Since I do love the "meatiness" of mushrooms and when I saw this recipe in my latest issue of  Food & Drink (one of my all time favorite food magazines, beautifully put together by LCBO (Ontario's Liquor Board) I knew I had to try it.  And after just a minimal tweaking,  here's my version...
and it was fantastic!  BTW, my Honey loved it cold today for a packed lunch!  It was so good I had to share with Hey What's For Dinner, Mom? link up.   And perhaps, we'll have more than one meatless meal this week.

How often do you go meatless?

Pasta and risotto make for great ways to go meatless! This sounds like such a delicious dish!
