I have been trying quinoa recipes and this is the best so far. You do have to cook it a little longer and maybe add more liquid but this is very good.
This was my first time using quinoa and I had a hard time getting past the texture. The overall recipe taste was good but the quinoa was a little weird.
A good recipe works well and taste good. Easy to prepare and cook. I needed to make no changes.
Delicious! So easy to make!
I made this tonight for the first time and really enjoyed it. I added about 1/2 cup of diced red onion, one large clove of garlic, finely minced and about 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram with the quinoa and vegetable broth. I added the chopped broccoli during the last 5-7 minutes of the cooking so it didn't overcook. I had some raw, cheddar curds that I grated and added at the end. Be sure to thoroughly rinse your quinoa before cooking to eliminate the bitterness. Looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
This is a great kid friendly quinoa recipe! We have made it several times and love it. One of my kids doesn't like broccoli but he loves this. It is a great quick meal with healthy ingredients. The only change I made was to use chicken broth instead of vegetable and I don't add any extra salt. I double the recipe for my family of 6 for the main dish.
Wow, this was so simple and yet so good. My husband who is not the biggest quinoa fan I know said I could "make this as a side any time." Don't forget to rinse the quinoa first to remove the bitterness. I also had to cook the quinoa a bit longer, and took the advice of some other reviewers and added the broccoli after 10 minutes of cooking. Also just added a tiny pinch of salt because I used a vegetable bouillon cube with water as a substitute for prepared vegetable broth. Definitely will be making this one again and again!
I've made it about 6-7 times so far and I find that I only need 2 cups of vegetable broth but everything else is perfect! My husband and I absolutely love this so thank you~
