Stuffed Mushrooms with Quinoa

Stuffed mushrooms with quinoa and pistachios intrigued me because of the recipe's fresh ingredients, plus I knew it would be pleasing to the eye with the green pistachios and red quinoa. The original recipe, though tasty, seemed to lack a much-needed punch of flavor...
