1 1/2 teaspoons
Chinese five-spice powder
red quinoa, rinsed and drained
Very simple, very tasty. Thank you.
BTW when you change a recipe by decreasing the spices in it, well it's not quite fair to call it bland, now is it?
The Chinese five-spice flavor was over whelming. Unless you want a very strong flavor of 5-spice cut the amount added. I will make it again and add only enough 5-spice to taste a hint of it.
Excellent and simple. The Chinese 5-spice was a nice and I used fresh ginger instead of powdered.
I used the full amount of spice with white quinoa. What a great dish! Oops, I used my garam masala instead of Chinese 5-spice. Sorry...I just have to rate it because it was so fragrantly good. Both of these mixtures have many variations, so that will affect your outcome. I have seen 5-spice with cinnamon as the first ingredient, and others with szechuan pepper as the first! I like the garam masala on this site, and it is probably milder than most 5-spice recipes. I plan to make this on a regular basis.
Not for us. Decreased the amount of 5-spice and it was very bland. Could only remotely taste a bit of cinnamon.
Very tasty! My husband loved it too. I added some roasted carrots and onions in the final few minutes of cooking. I served this with pork tenderloin and it complemented the pork wonderfully. So easy and delicious. Thanks for this great recipe.
Fantastic! Even the two little kids love it! Instead of water, I added some bone broth that we have going in our slow cooker 24/7 during the winter months. As a result, ours was not as salty as I think it would have been had I used bullion, but this was easily rectified by adding a couple pinches of salt after cooking. I also used freshly grated ginger so there's a little extra spicy kick.
