Chicken and Mushroom Quinoa Risotto

Are you a fan of risotto, but you're also afraid of those pesky little carbs? You can replace rice with something healthier, like quinoa, and still obtain a delicious flavor and texture. Add some chicken breast, mushrooms (the more exotic, the better), a bit of spinach, and a touch of parmesan.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
