This was the first time I've ever cooked quinoa, so I followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious! This recipe is definitely a keeper.Note: for me, the quinoa took a lot longer to get absorbed than the recipe stated.
I am always looking for new recipes with quinoa and/or vegetables. I was hesitant because there wasn't a picture but mine too out great! I think I used too much oil for sauting the onions because I can taste it. My husband who is Mexican and likes his salt, added more salt on his and he had no other complaints. I would make this again as this is jam packed with veggies. He can be a picky eater when I try new recipes but if HE likes it, it is a winner! I did not change a thing about the recipe and ate this with a salad.
This is an easy, tasty, attractive dish! I have read that a key to good-tasting quinoa is to rinse it two or three times before preparing. I rinsed until the grain smelled clean, then drained thoroughly and went on with recipe. This will be a frequent side dish at our house. I think I'll switch out various veggies depending on the main dish I'm pairing it with.
I've made this recipe a couple times now. It's a great side dish with lots of flavour.
