I bucked my usual trend and made this recipe for the first time almost exactly as written. Regular gouda because I couldn't find goat gouda, and I added onion in with the garlic step. I also couldn't find raw sunflower seeds (life is hard at the ghetto grocery store), so I tossed the roasted ones in as the garlic and onion were finishing. I tripled the recipe, three of us ate it as a light meal, and I had two good sized servings left. We all were extremely pleased with the flavor, and I definitely will be making this again. A 5 oz. package of fresh baby spinach was just perfect for the triple recipe. Interestingly, I liked the flavor just as much when I sampled it cold as I was putting it away. I'm taking it for lunch tomorrow, and I'm going to try eating it without reheating to see how it is. If it works as a leftover at room temperature, I'll have to bump my 5 stars up to 10! Thanks very much for posting this recipe. I needed a fresh take on quinoa; I was tired of the several recipes I've been using for years.
