Add wine and drained quinoa and saute on 100 for 3 minutes speed 1 - Reverse
Add remaining ingredients and cook on 100 for 30 minutes speed 1 - Reverse 

Place baby spinach at bottom of Thermoserver and pour quinoa on top, let rest for 5 minutes then stir well.
Top with Parmesan if you wish.

Thanks Quirky Cooking for helping me get my measurements correct -

NB:  IF you're using soaked Quinoa you might want to lower the water content by 150g or so.  Depending on how you like your risotto texture to be....obviously when it's been soaked it's holding a lot of water already.  Hope that makes sense.
