Hubby and I both enjoyed this recipe. Very nice blend of spices. I used two cloves of garlic for added flavor. I didn't have raisins, so I used currants and they worked very well. I suggest using a little less than 2 cups of broth. My quinoa was done and there was still quite a bit of liquid left which led to a bit of a mushy texture. The only change I would make is to use fresh cilantro. The 1/2 tsp of dried cilantro added no flavor. I loved the roasted red peppers mixed in and the crunch from the almonds. This quinoa would also be good served cold the next day.

This was delicious! I didn't have a few ingredients like the cilantro, ginger, or almonds, but it was delicious either way!

I recipe last night and it was really good. Very healthy and delicious. Even my kids liked it. I made a mistake in using a real ginger because I didn't have the powder ones. it had some light bitter after taste from the ginger.

I just made this for the first time and slightly altered it (I already had the quinoa cooked, didn't saute onions and didn't have curry) but it was still delicious! It was even better the next day. I want to make it again but I want to follow the instructions. I'm sure it's even better. Very easy to make. Worthwhile recipe.

This was a great side dish!! I didn't have a fresh onion so I used onion powder. I added diced carrots and celery too. We were also fresh out of almonds and raisins. Orange flavored cranberries worked great. I don't usually have vegetable stock so we used chicken instead and no added salt. Even my pickiest eater gobbled it up. This is a definite keeper!!!!

I doubled this recipe and it made quite a bit. I ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I still could eat more! I did add more spices and salt to bring out the flavors. Really delicious, thank you for this wonderful dish.
