Method

  • Drain the soaked mushrooms, placing the liquid in a large pan, and chop them. Add the stock to the pan too and slowly bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Heat half the oil in another large pan, add the mushrooms and sauté over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan, add the onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped dried mushrooms, garlic, quinoa and rice and stir for 30 seconds. Add the wine and gently simmer, stirring until evaporated.
  • Add a ladleful of hot stock and cook, stirring until absorbed. Repeat until the rice is tender and the stock has all been used (15-20 minutes). Stir in the reserved mushrooms, cheese and basil, then serve.
