Sesame Mushroom

Before becoming conscious of my diet, I used to live in the Chinese restaurants. Still love the taste as it lingers in my memory. If you loved Chinese food as much as I did, get your chopsticks ready. I do not eat a lot of mushrooms, maybe once every few weeks, but whenever I do, this is one of my favorites. For this meal, the sesame mushrooms were made with quinoaand cilantro sprinkled on top.
