I made this for Passover seder last night. I was very excited to discover that quinoa is kosher for passover while other grains like rice and couscous are not. Anyhow, I had 20 people so I tripled the recipe. I had a ton of it. People ate at least half and I still have lots leftover. It says that it serves 4 but as a side dish, I'd say it serves more like 8. It got rave reviews from all of my guests and several people asked for the recipe. I did tweak it a bit as per recommendations from other reviewers. I tripled the quinoa but only doubled the vegetables. I also cooked the quinoa in vegetable broth and added a teaspoon of cumin. I also added two large cloves of garlic. Keeping in mind that I tripled the recipe, two cloves were very strong and prounounced. It tasted good but one large clove would have over-powered a single recipe. If were to make a single recipe, I would be very conservative with the garlic. A little goes a long way. I also did 1 cup parsley, 1 cup cilantro and 1 cup mint which tasted awesome. The only complaint about this recipe is that it involves a TON of chopping and took a long time to make because of it.
