This was delicious and extremely flavorful! Granted, I had to make several changes just because I was working with I had on hand. No mushrooms, so sauteed broccoli and added it last minute instead. I used about 5-6cloves of garlic cause you can't have too much. Had dry lentils (1cup) so cooked those separate for 15mins in water and chicken bullion cause I didn't think they'd fit in my pot. I am very new to cooking and had no idea how quinoa cooks (expand quite a bit FYI to fellow new cookers). Also steamed chard separate for same reason. When there was about 5 mins left on the quinoa, I drained lentils and added them to quinoa to absorb some of the broth (I forgot to decrease chicken stock when I didn't add lentils at start).
This was my first experience with quinoa and it will now be a staple in my cooking. So easy, healthy and very filling! Excellent high protein, high fiber, low fat meal! My boyfriend and I had just this as a meal and barely made a dent in the pot. Thank you for an excellent recipe idea!
