The recipe is supposed to serve three? As a small side, I guess. In my opinion it's more like two decent sides, or one generous main serving for vegetarians, with a side of lentils or something. The flavors are excellent, though I used plain old chopped pecans and colby jack cheese. Something about the toasted nuts with the quinoa is very good. I toasted my quinoa in a dry skillet before cooking it, and I like to cook it in broth for more flavor. When it was cooked, I didn't cool it off just to heat it up again. I'm not sure what purpose that step serves. I started the nuts right before the quinoa was cooked and put it in hot. As a low-carber, next time I would add a LOT more spinach and maybe up the amount of cheese to go along with that. Because it was just cheese and not cheese sauce, the texture of this dish was very sticky, but I still liked it a lot.
