Very Good 4.4/5

Cookbook creator says: think about adding mushrooms with the peas ( or in place of). Probably needs more protein

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.

Fried rice using quinoa instead of rice, edamame and egg for protein, and lots of frozen veggies to keep things easy.
