Very good dish. I believe that previous reviews calling the dish "bitter" was due to inexperience in cooking quinoa. Quinoa needs to be rinsed thoroughly to remove the outer layer of saponin. If the saponin is not rinsed off then the dish becomes bitter. I cooked this dish with sauteed garlic and extra veggies. More salt needed to be added to compensate for the extra veggies. Next time, instead of adding extra salt, I'll boil the quinoa with a cup of chicken stock. Very filling and extremely healthy eating!
