I made this for a party where there were some who eat gluten free & it was a big hit even among those who are gluten lovers. I had many recipe requests! I used more cranberries than called for to make it a little sweeter. Delicious!
I made this recipe exactly as the directions stated and I thought it was pretty bland. Granted I prefer spicy foods, this dish seems like it's lacking something. I was looking for healthy recipes but I probably won't try this again.
I srved this at Thanksgiving and even the non vegetarian/vegans loved the taste of this dish! It's a keeper!
I made This for Easter, and everyone loved it! I added some cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to give it a sweeter taste. Thanks for a healthy and more importantly, a vegetation dish that everyone likes!
I agree that this recipe was very bland. At the end I added cinnamon and cayenne to spice it up a bit. It would be better to saute the squash and zucchini with spices in the beginning before adding quinoa - another option would be to use sweet potato instead of squash. Nice concept but lacking taste.
Followed the recipe as stated and found it to be pretty bland, but I couldn't figure out what it was lacking. If I did it again, I probably would'be tried using the chicken broth I had on hand instead of going out of my way to get some vegetable. It would lose it's vegetarian charm, but might have a richer flavor. I was disappointed. First time using Quinoa, though, and am thankful for the experience. Would have to figure out how to make it more flavorful.
Made this recipe for a new year's day dinner in place of regular stuffing. It was delicious, and my husband loved it too. Salted and peppered to taste in addition to slightly longer cooking time on the squash, but could've been b/c i couldn't find a "small" butternut squash. Definitely will be making this again.
Horrible. Give me strength, no salt, no spices. Stuffing, with no sage, no thyme, no poultry seasoning. This isn't even an attempt to make Quinoa taste 'like' stuffing. Quinoa, vegetables and lime juice? This tastes like licking paper.
I'd try Quinoa, veggie stock, something to add crunch (some kind of nut) dried cranberries, lots of sage / poultry seasoning, sea salt, vegan butter to brown off your Quinoa, browned crispy cut button mushrooms. Now you have a high protein tasty, vegetarian stuffing. Salt and pepper, pack into tinfoil and if not vegan use and egg so it bakes like stuffing and binds together when baked.
