    1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in quinoa until well blended.
    2. Pour in 125ml white wine and cook, stirring, until absorbed by the quinoa, about 30 seconds. Stir in 425ml chicken stock, 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon chopped thyme. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Pour in 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, 4 tablespoons white wine, 4 tablespoons chicken stock and 1 teaspoon chopped thyme. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the mushrooms soften, about 5 minutes.
    4. Once the quinoa has cooked, stir in the mushroom mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove quinoa from the heat and stir in spinach leaves, which will wilt. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with crumbled goat cheese.
