This dish was DELICIOUS! Even my husband liked it! I did add a few things...about 1 TBS of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of pine nuts toasted. I used minced garlic (1 heaping TBS) because I didn't have any fresh. I cooked the quinoa in 2 cups of chicken broth instead of water. (not 3! Quinoa is cooked like rice, 1 part quinoa 2 parts liquid) This was my whole dinner, my husband had it as a side dish to steak. This was incredible and my new favorite way to make quinoa!
both my husband and i love the flavors of this dish. as the recipe states, you can use almost any vegetable that you have on hand. i used garlic, red onion, fresh corn cut from the cob, red bell pepper and celery. i also used red quinoa which, i think, takes more time to cook than white quinoa. awesome recipe!
Finally! A way I enjoy quinoa. This recipe rocks...the cumin & oregano give it just a little more flavor. And straining made the texture so much better...it also makes it moldable so you can play around with serving it aesthetically (e.g. use a measuring cup pack it then turn it upside down on the plate). I'll make this again for sure!
So healthy and delicious. Added green onion, cherry tomatoes, frozen corn, can of drained rinsed black beans, fresh baby spinach, made a dressing of 1/4c olive oil, cumin, chili powder, salt and cracked pepper and the juice of 2 limes and 2 cloves of minced garlic. Also cooked my quinoa in chicken broth. So good! Thanks!
Great recipe you can change up. I cooked my quinoa with half veggie broth, half water and 2 cut up carrots (so they would soften). For my veggies I used garlic, bell pepper, kale, zucchini, and cauliflower. I added a little more cumin and a little garlic powder and it came out wonderful. My carnivorous boyfriend topped his with marinara sauce and said it was the best veggie meal I've made to date. Really easy, really versatile, really delicious. Play around with it, you can pretty much add anything!
This is my very first time trying quinoa, not even sure how its pronounced. I really loved it and this dish is awesome, quite simple and i used red bell peppers, broccoli, onions, celery, carrots, and garlic. Its a simple dish, nothing too special but since I have never had quinoa I will give it a 5 because it tasted good all together.
This was my first time making quinoa. This is a great basic dish which you can add whatever you want. I added leftover veggies -- onion green bell pepper carrots and asparagus. I also topped it with fresh chopped tomatoes feta cheese and avocado. It was wonderful. I used my bag directions for cooking the quinoa though.
