Recipe

I am always on the lookout for quick and easy vegetarian meals, especially ones like this that combine two of my favorite things - leeks and mushrooms.  Since most of the flavor in this recipe comes from the veggies, I recommend looking for fresh, flavorful mushrooms like baby bella, crimini, or better yet a mix of a few different types of your favorites.  In terms of the quinoa, you could use any type and can also change out the cheese for goat cheese, Parmesan, Romano, or gorgonzola.  Lastly, you can change out the herbs for fresh basil, oregano, or even dill would be delicious.
