Serious Salads: Warm Quinoa Pilaf Salad with Shiitake Mushrooms, Carrots & Pecans
This earthy-tasting warm quinoa salad with shiitake mushrooms and crunchy pecans is hearty and wholesome. Serve it as a main course and no one will ever miss the meat.
Note: Shiitakes never come in contact with dirt, so the only washing usually necessary is a gentle wipe with a damp cloth or a paper towel. Use a knife to remove the stems where they meet the cap.
