"Quinoa is a high flavor, high protein grain made popular by the Incas, then rediscovered by NASA. Need I say any more?"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

water, or more as needed to cover
Swiss chard, stems and tough ribs removed, leaves cut into 1/2-inch-wide ribbons
salt to taste
ground black pepper
I enjoyed making this dish. Next time I need to use more Swiss Chard because the bunch I got had a lot of leaves that looked like they were starting to spoil. I also put more lemon in for the fish, but that is just a personal preference. I will be making this again!
Healthy and tasty nothing stood out to me in flavors, but knowing I got everything recommended in my pregnancy food list was great!
Tried cooking this meal tonight. It was actually very tasty, and is a very nutritious meal. The Quinoa is labeled a "super food" and Swiss Chard is one of the most nutritious vegetables. Add the benefits of Salmon and garlic, and you have a winner. It also tastes very good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the presentation. It doesn't really look very attractive, but it's worth it for the taste and quality of the meal.
Absolutely my family's favorite recipe from this website. Didn't need to change a thing, although made it once with kale due to what the store had and that was great too.
I added a little diced tomato I had left over and sautéed the stems of the chard and added it all together
I totally misread the recipe. I had pre-marinated salmon fillets and was looking for a swiss chard recipe when I picked this one. So, I grilled the salmon and made the rest as a side dish and it was very good! The lemon juice really added just the right flavor. I'll be making this again!
Well this is just fabulous! I did grill my salmon with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Otherwise made as written and it is so, so good!
It was ok. I toasted the quinoa for the first time, and it took away the "dirt" flavor - definitely recommend doing this.
