I only had quinoa, and no kalmata olives on hand, but the end result was fabulous! I added some diced serrano and used harissa (very spicy) evoo! Loved it! Very quick and easy. I made the quinoa during the day, and threw the rest together while my main dish was cooking on the grill!
This is so good! Loved it with a pitas and some thinly sliced sirloin. I also served some fresh spinach with cucumbers. My only change to the recipe was to add some basil and mint instead of parsley and to use all stock and no water. The leftovers will be great for lunch, too.
Really delicious. When I first tasted it, I found it a little dry and the texture a little boring. I added an extra tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 cup of sliced almonds and was really happy with the changes. Next time I will still make these additions and will then double the whole recipe because this quantity was only enough to feed two people as an entree, and I want leftovers!
