"This was my first time trying quinoa and it was very good. I added some dried thyme and I swapped out the broccoli for cauliflower to please my fussy mother. I can't want to make it again."
"Excellent recipe. I like the quinoa as a hearty replacement for rice."
"The perfect answer to a different side dish for grilled steaks!"
