Mystic Mushroom and Quinoa Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I made this recipe with high hopes due to the high rating here. I was VERY disappointed. None of my family would eat it, and we are all big Quinoa and mushroom soup eaters. I thought that I might have done something wrong, so I remade the soup, to the same disappointing results. It is bland, too thick and did not have any real mushroom flavor. I did not even see a way to change it to make it better. I will not be trying this recipe again.

Lemony Quinoa

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
This is a great recipe, but I did need to make quite a few changes to make it perfect for my family. First I found that it was a little dry and needed more flavor, so I doubled the amount of Lemon, and Cumin. I left the cayenne pepper the same since my children do not like spicy food. I also added Garlic, 1 tbsp of Lemon zest, 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 tsp olive oil, shredded carrots, red bell pepper, and grape tomatoes. I took out the pine nuts and cut the amount of parsley in half. I will normally serve it on a bed of arugula, with grilled chicken strips. I know it is a lot of changes, but this is a great base recipe that has become a family favorite and is always on the request list for neighborhood BBQ's.
