  • This was delicious; thank you! It was my 1st try with quinoa, too, so this was a great introduction. The only things I did differently were to cook the quinoa separately and then mix the sauteed veggies and milk/egg mixture into it, and I also added spinach. Your measurements were perfect. Thanks! : - 3/11/12
