Thyme Mushroom Quinoa Saute

We had snow last week and then this week we are having a heat wave!!  I hope it lasts!  I want all this snow to melt and for spring to come!! I have never had quinoa (keen-wa) before.  In the last week or so, a few friends have mentioned it and I thought I should try it. This recipe has some of my favorite foods; mushrooms, garlic, Parmesan, but at the end of the day it was too bland for me.  If I make this again I will add more spices.
