Not bad, but not overly impressed as-is. It is delicious, however, topped with avocado. In the future I will try this with coconut flakes.
I have to agree with others in that it seems like it's missing something, but I do like the fact that this is packed with nutrients. I let mine sit overnight for best flavor and it was just so-so.
Other than toasting the almonds in 1 tbsp olive oil, I didn't change the ingredients, but I did cut the cilantro and onion in half after reading many reviews. I also cut the onion very thin so it wasn't overpowering.
For those cilantro haters out there, you can always use oregano in its place.
I make my quinoa in a rice cooker and use only water, not stock or broth, as IMO, that tends to make it more dry.
For anyone new to quinoa, I recommend against purchasing it in cardboard packaging - opt for airtight packaging instead. I've read many complaints about quinoa taking on the taste of the cardboard.
Always, always, always rinse quinoa before cooking. I rinse quinoa in a stainless 5 cup sifter until bubbles are gone and water runs clear.
I highly recommend trying Mojito Cuban Quinoa Salad. Absolutely Delicious!!
