Made this for Earth Day Dinner. I followed the recipe as posted except for my additon of sugar snap peas. I especially liked toasting the quinoa before cooking it. Lovely aroma and nutty taste. I will make this again, it's easy, pretty and delicious. I plan to use organic veggie broth for extra yum! Submitted by:

Tasty. I substituted veggie broth for the water, and yellow pepper for the green. Calorie change was minimal, but protein content still too low. I had to supplement with extra firm tofu, sauteed in a little non-stick cooking spray and some fresh herbs. That made it really yummy. Submitted by:
