I'm not sure how to really rate this recipe. Based on the reviews, I should have really loved this one but to my disappointment, it wasn't that good. My dish turned out with a very bitter taste and that was BEFORE I added the quinoa. Now, I know from cooking quinoa before that you have to rinse it well before you cook it so it doesn't taste bitter (this recipe should have stated that) and I did rinse my quinoa but my dish was bitter before I even put the quinoa in! By the way, the quinoa itself was fine, it wasn't bitter. I decided maybe I should add more wasabi powder as some of the reviewers suggested but before I did, I tasted the wasabi to see how much of a kick it had and UGH! It was horribly bitter! It was a brand new container and I had just bought it an hour before at the market. I Googled wasabi powder and discovered that it can go bad and when it does, tastes bitter. SO, I went back to the market and bought a tube of wasabi paste and added it to my recipe hoping that if I added enough it would disguise the bitterness. I'm not sure how well it will work. I will let the dish set overnight and see. Seems to me this recipe should taste good based on its ingredients but just be sure you RINSE YOUR QUINOA BEFORE COOKING, AND HAVE FRESH WASABI POWDER! I think the recipe should be clearer on these two things because it can ruin the whole dish.
