    This was our first quinoa recipe. We made it with organic ingredients and only quinoa. It took about the same time the recipe called for but we gave it a couple of nimutes at the end to be able to fluff it. Toasted 2 Tbs of pine nuts and added them at the end. We served it with olive topped tilapia and mixed veggies. I can see a lot of variations in our future!

    Good flavor, interesting textures. Might be nice with a few mushrooms sauteed in with the onion.

    This was pretty tasty and a healthy change from standard rice. Nice consistency and nutty flavor. My husband actually thought I was cooking with peanut butter. I made one substitute - I didn't have any scallions so I diced a small onion instead. I will make this again.

    This recipe is so simple, healthy and delicious, I subsituted brown rice for the basmati and it added great flavor

    I like the combination of grains, and toasting them brings out a slight nutty quality. I did not have green onions or chicken broth, so I used a little roasted garlic, fresh lemon juice+filtered water, lemon zest, and a little additional salt. I would like to add something else for more flavor (veggies? herbs?), but this came out very nicely!
