I wanted to love this, but I should've paid closer attention to the reviews. Seems like the two main complaints (too much salt and the fact that it boils over easily) were also my main issues with the recipe. I used 1/2 tsp sea salt, when using just a pinch would've sufficed. As a quinoa newbie, I forgot to rinse it, so I'll definitely do going forward. I didn't have dates (which I adore and would've improved the flavor), so I subbed out some pomegranate craisins. I also used toasted walnuts in lieu of the almonds and added more cinnamon while it was simmering. I will definitely tweak this for next time and try again, as I'm trying to incorporate more quinoa into our family's diet.
