MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2014

This dish is delicious! I left out the cilantro and it was terrific even without it. If this is intended as as side dish, which is what I used it for, it makes about 6-8 servings. It goes well with meatloaf, fish and probably many other main dishes and it reheats well in the microwave. I know I will be making this often. This is my first attempt at using quinoa and after successfully trying it, I'll look for more quinoa recipes.
