Reviews forConfetti Quinoa
"This was ok. I took another reviewers advice and used veg stock in place of water. Omit salt. Don't understand the lemon. Added a strange flavor. As far as the veggies go...do NOT put in until last 5 minutes of simmer unless you want unformable, mushy veggies with 0 nutritional content."
"Only thing I would add is to replace half or all of the water with broth to give it some extra flavor."
"Very delicious recipe! I usually find quinoa a little plain, but this certainly jazzed it up for me! I loved the veggies and the seasonings. Will definitely make this again!"
