I loved this dish. Made it for my family and they liked it. Have made it several times and will keep making it often. Thanks for sharing.

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.
