Garlic Cheese Quinoa Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
I've never given a poor review, and we love quinoa and garlic and cheese, but this was BLAND--nearly tasteless, even though I'd used a pepper jack velveeta. I don't even think we'll finish the dish, cause it will be completely inedible without topping it with more cheese or hot sauce or something. I'll try to tweak it to serve it because quinoa is nutritious and rather expensive, but it needs some serious help. Sorry, but I won't be making this again, which is disappointing, considering the quinoa itself smelled pretty good while it was cooking.

This was my first try at cooking quinoa, and I am a convert!! I did saute some diced zucchini and red onion first, which I added to the quinoa and some veggie broth as in step 1. (I tasted it at the end of 15 minutes... and I could have eaten it all right then!) I followed the rest of the recipe as written, topping with bread crumbs rather than panko (dear hubby shopping foul noted). In the end, a satisfying and healthy new comfort food!
