Couscous with Olives and Sun-Dried Tomato
I am guilty of not making this as written, so read my review with that in mind. This dish was very popular at a table with 6 year olds, 20 year olds, 50 year olds, and 80 year olds. Everyone liked. That being said, I did not make the "add-ins" as a sauce. It was just less time to skip that step entirely. I made the pearl couscous, added chopped black olives and sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese, pressed the garlic, skipped the shallots having none on hand, and at the very end, added the pine nuts. Tasty. I'm sure the original way is very good, this was just easier. Pearl couscous is very forgiving. Doesn't get mushy easy. Have made this twice already. It's a keeper.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach
I thought this was surprisingly delicious. I'm not fond of cheesy vegetarian dishes, and this was tasty without being heavy. My children both pronounced it as "disgusting" (as they usually do), but once they tasted it gave it two thumbs up. Used parmesan cheese and pine nuts because that is what I had. In my recipe box to make again.

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes
Everyone liked this dish and I served it to a wide range of people at dinner. I used fresh coriander rather than parsley as I had none on hand. I cooked the chickpeas and tomatoes in the quinoa for a bit to have the flavors meld. I cooked the quinoa in vegetable broth not water I used at least 3x the amount of cumin required and put in a pinch of red pepper. I kept tasting the dish saying it was tasteless and kept adding ground cumin until it registered. I'll make it again, very popular at my house, but 1/2 tsp cumin is not enough!
