Reviews for Quinoa with Peas and Onion
Sort By :
I've tried several quinoa recipes lately and had almost given up on the grain. While this one tasted a lot like peas, it's mildness and versatility did renew my hope for quinoa.
I didn't even add the nuts and it was very good. I will make again and try adding other things.
I also added some shredded carrots.
This was the first time I tried quinoa, so I didnt know what to expect. It turned out very good, but I did have to add some seasoning salt. I will definetly make it again:)
Have prepared this quinoa dish a few times and find it very tasty. Made half the recipe and reduced the salt to 1/8 tsp. Replaced the walnuts w/ toasted pine nuts. Yum, yum, it's even good cold.
