Very good, I'm on weight watchers so I modified the recipe some to start. I cut out the olive oil completely! Sprayed my pan with some olive oil spray and fried the veggies, poured the dry quinoa on top and sprayed it then stirred, then added the juice/water. I had no walnuts so i toasted pecans instead, they were perfect! I used half the amount of raisins and still though they were a bit much. Next time I will cut back some more and add extra spice 1Tbsp was not enough for us. All in all, excellent!
Did not really care for this even though I liked all the ingred. that went into it. The orange flavor was overpowering for my taste.
I followed the advice in other reviews and omitted the cilantro (my husband hates), and halved the pumpkin pie spice. It was a big hit at a church gathering, especially with the vegetarians in the group. I didn't have walnuts, but would add them next time, it would take it up a notch. Be prepared for your house to smell wonderful as an added bonus!
This recipe is very good. Very flavorful! I omitted the onion (because I'm breastfeeding) and the cilantro (I'm not a fan). It still was fabulous!
Very delicious dish. As you can see from my picture I served it with sauteed Brussels sprouts and loved every bite. I used parsley instead of cilantro because that's what I had.
I used craisins instead of raisins and cut the amount down to 3/4 C. also added more than 1/4 C of walnuts. It is definitely a keeper, very yummy
I enjoyed this very much - yummy! Fam not crazy about grains. :-(
Mmmm...This is REALLY good! I liked all the raisins, even if my husband thought it was a bit heavy-handed with them. I used parsley, instead of cilantro. My only complaint was the lack of instruction whether or not to keep it covered. I ended up, towards the end, covering it and adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time. It was my first time using this grain, and I learned the little balls become clearish with a white center and then little "tail-like" sprouts appear. It's a keeper, and I'm so glad I used this recipe as my first with this new food.
