"Quinoa is an ancient South American grain, often called a 'superfood' because of its high content of protein, fiber, iron, and amino acids. It can be used almost anywhere you would use rice. It is gluten-free, with a mild nutty flavor, and a slightly chewy texture. This recipe is a great cold-weather comfort food--it is creamy, rich, and hearty."

This recipe was pretty great as is. The changes I would make next time are: 2 cans of tomatoes (and double the wine), 8oz of fresh sliced mushrooms when sauteing the onions. I added the peas (still frozen) after 15 min and simmered for 5 more min.
I'm a little perplexed by all the rave reviews. This is OK, but not better. I agree with the reviewer who recommended doubling the tomatoes. They kinda shrivel up in the oven and disappear once mixed into the quinoa. I will do that if I make this again, but I probably won't make it again.
My fiance and I loved this!!!!! I did some little tweaks to it though. I didn't have any coconut oil so I used olive oil instead and I used fat free condesned milk. I also used tomatoes with chopped chiles to give it a little extra kick. I also shredded some baby carrots into the veggies as well. I also used chicken stock instead of the veggie stock. I will make this again!
This was really good! I adapted it slightly - added WAY more veggies than called for and a touch more cheese, broth and evap. milk. Also, used a 29oz can diced tomatoes and I would use even more next time! Also, added diced carrots and am thinking mushrooms and/or asparagus would be a yummy addition next time too. Thanks for a keeper =)
This was very yummy. My husband enjoyed it too. Only changes I made were based on others' reviews so I used more tomatoes, wine, peas and paremesan. Used chicken broth instead of vegetable. Used olive oil instead of coconut. I also liked the fact that we were eating something that was pretty good for us too. I will def make this again.
This was sooooooooo great! I simply used carrots instead of celery (not a fan)and doubled the tomatoes and peas and used olive oil. Scrumptious! I do agree that mushrooms would be lovely also.
I gave this 5 stars, my husband gave it 4 stars (but he's comparing it to his favorite food ever, salami sandwiches ;) ). This was easy to make (it took a little bit of time, probably because I hadn't drained the tomatoes enough) and was delicious! This was my first time cooking quinoa and it won't be my last. I substituted shallots for the onion (it was what I had on hand). I'm looking forward to eating the leftovers :) Made this again - it is even BETTER with mushrooms in it. I added them to the onion/celery mix when they were cooking.
This was my first time at trying quinoa as well. I was really nervous. Because I'm such a picky eater, I omitted the tomatoes and replaced peas with edamame. Delicious!
