This side dish is easy to make and is great for serving with a more flavorful main dish. It has a simple flavor that compliments the rest of the meal.
Super bland--was disappointed. I agree with some of the other reviewers--it definitely is in need of something more. Kinda annoyed now that I see there are green onions in the picture, but the recipe never called for any, so I didn't make it that way. Maybe that would have given it more flavor.
Good Day! Am *new* to Quinoa vs. starchy *stuff*, Truly hoping to acquaint **new TOH Friends* in this manner, J.
I used two small-medium size carrots (we like carrots!). It can easily be adapted with other veggies. It was very easy and yummy - thanks for sharing!
I make this frequently when I want to change up the side dish habit away from potatoes or rice. I've also diced up broccoli and zucchini to add in. I also replaced the 1/4 cup of water with a 1/4 of white wine or chicken broth.
I love quinoa! It is so versatile and healthy. You can add anything to it. I have added every vegetable in my fridge to it, mixed it with vegetable, chicken and beef broth. It's great as a side or as a main course, with or without meat.
Very easy to make and went perfect with some steaks we had.
Tried this recipe for my first attempt at ever making or eating Quinoa. I used baby carrots in the recipe (thats what I had on hand) and I thought it was delicious. A good base recipe to add things too like green scallions or whatnot. It did take a longer time than stated to cook all of the broth out but this recipe made me fall in love with this healthy grain! Thanks for sharing it!
I used more carrots and more onions, so that I could count this as a starch and a veggie, and it was blah. It definitely needs something green (like in the picture) and needs something more for flavor. Not sure what, but will probably try again.
This needed something. It was very bland. It needs fresh herbs and more vegetables.
