To rinse or not to rinse? RINSE! If you have a mesh strainer, rinse thoroughly and then get as much water out as possible by shaking off the strainer and then setting the strainer on a folded paper towel to draw off the remaining water. It does make a difference with the flavor. Proceed as called for in this recipe. My quinoa roasted in the butter just fine after rinsing.
This recipe is very good though I found that it lacked some flavor. Rather than add a bunch of spices to perk it up, I diced about a cup of mushrooms and sauteed them with a little butter, garlic, salt & pepper. It was just the ticket! Also, I used a heaping cup of frozen peas. I left out the thyme because I didn't think it was meant for this dish and I'm glad I did. This is a great recipe and one I will use again and again.
