Id suggest that you mix the non quinoa ingreadient and water together boefre adding it to the quinoa - esp the tahini which is sometimes a little tricky to mix. This dish goes well with peas and carrots, or broccoli and mushrooms, and add a little hot sauce or red pepper flakes for some heat. - 6/25/14
