  1. Bring broth and water to a boil in saucepan. Add wild rice, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 50 minutes. Stir in quinoa, and cook 20 minutes more, or until most of water is absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Add olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion and cook 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in sage and wild rice/quinoa mixture and increase heat to medium-high and cook until liquid has evaporated, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in goat cheese.
