I followed the recipe exactly, but because I used salted ckichen stock, I left out the salt and it was perfect. I served it with Cooking Light’s Grilled Pork Tenderloin Roulade and I thought it complemented it very well. I will definitely make this recipe again.
Must admit I used a wild rice and quinoa mix from Costco, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe (ok, a little white wine added toward the end). DELISH! Accompaniement to the soy orange salmon from CL, with fresh summer fruit on the side. Wonderful meal.
Fairly easy to put together. Quite tasty. I used dried parsley in place of fresh.
I like this recipe a lot. Very tasty and had some depth. Much better than just plain quinoa alone.
The flavors combination is perfect with broiled or grilled fish, especially salmon with a soy-based marinade. I sub veg stock in lieu of chicken and scallions instead of chives. Result is less salty and subtly milder flavor. This is my go-to quinoa recipe and my wife loves it which is most important!
Ok I'll admit it - I'm NOT a fan of quinoa. But DD wanted to try this and I'm glad I kept an open mind. It was very good and this was very easy to put together. Served with Citrus-Rubbed Skirt Steak (also from Cooking Light) and it was a hit! I will definitely make this again.
The best quinoa I've ever had. It came out absolutely delicious and flavorful! I will be making this again and again!
This was excellent, and far quicker to make than I thought it would be. I have never been a huge quinoa fan, but I would definitely make this again (and the 5 other people I made it for this evening agree).
I didn't love this recipe. It was a bit too salty. And I didn't feel the flavors popped well. It was definitely better cold rather than hot...
This is now one our staple quinoa recipes. Delicious!
Awesome and tasty method for cooking quinoa. Very healthful and tasty with a variety of proteins; we made with the orange marmalade and soy-glazed salmon from the same month CL. Loved it!
I made 1/3 this recipe as a side because it had great reviews. I didn't think it was that good. It went okay with the dinner but flavor just wasn't there. I used onion for the shallot and subbed slivered almonds and that was fine because it gave a nice crunch.
My first time making quinoa. Used onion instead of shallots, but it turned out well. Eating grain-free. This will be a staple.
Wouldn't change a thing. This is my favorite quinoa recipe now.
Quinoa is my favorite new side and sometimes main dish. The herbs and pine nuts go nicely in this recipe; great side.
Really great!! I used dried parsley because I didn't have fresh. That was the only substitution I made. The recipe added a lot of interest to what can be a sort of blah grain. Will definitely make again.
This came together quickly and was tasty. Great side for the soy marmalade salmon. I subbed onion for shallots and skipped the herbs.
Outstanding. I didn't even add the fresh herbs at the end. This will be a constant side dish in my household.
My 10-year old daughter and I give this our stamp of approval.
