This warm salad pairs the mushrooms and ghee with the grain of your choice, and chopped dried apricots for a bright sunny finish. Enjoy this as a side salad or reduce the number of servings for the recipe to two and make it a meal. Recipe and image courtesy of Sherrie Castellano.



  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 onion
  • 4 cups Mushrooms, White, Raw
  • 8 piece Dried Apricot
  • 1/4 cup White Cooking Wine
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper, Black
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups Spinach, Raw
  • 2 tbsp Kale Sprouts


1 Heat the ghee in a sauté pan over low heat. Add in the onions, stir and cook for 3 more minutes.
2 Turn the heat up to high, add in the mushrooms, stir and cook for 5 - 7 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender.
3 Season with salt and pepper, and add in the apricot and white wine and cook for 2 minutes while stirring occasionally.
4 Remove from the heat and add in the quinoa (any whole grain will do) and spinach, and toss gently. Serve with sprouts, as the spinach begins to wilt.
