I hadn't thought of serving quinoa with pesto before so this recipe was a great idea starter for me. As well as the pesto, I added lots more tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chopped olives, chopped spinach, pine nuts and ate the whole thing with a little grated Parmesan on top. Delicious!
Decent enough. Honestly you could put pesto on a car battery serve it with a side of brussels sprouts and you'd hear no complaints from me. Pesto is the man. Pesto is God's favorite food. I added three chopped hard-boiled eggs to this because it was breakfast next time I might leave the yolks a little runny.
I make this as a side dish with grilled chicken and add feta cheese - it's delicious! I also make a cold salad by adding cucumber red peppers green onions and feta. It's a wonderful lunch in the summer!
This was so simple and tasty! I did add 3T of pesto used veggie broth and a bunch of little grape tomatoes. Then I decided to add more - some baby spinach black olives and garbanzo beans. Nice addition to my "quinoa recipes". Thanks.
Not what I expected. I added 3 tbsp. of pesto as others mentioned. I also added roasted red pepper artichoke hearts parsley parmesan cheese and two pinches of sugar. The consistency was a little goopy. Either there was too much chicken broth or I didn't let it sit long enough. I didn't eat any right away but placed in the fridge so the flavors can blend together. Hopefully it will taste better after being refrigerated!
