    This is an excellent basic recipe and it was just what I was looking for. I wanted something other than plain quinoa. I used veggie broth and added salt & pepper. Makes a great side dish and can be the basis for main courses and yes, as MoretA63 wrote, it lends itself to endless variations! - 4/13/11

    Simply delicious. I didn't have Chicken stock so I used water and added 1/2 tsp salt. This recipe would lend itself to endless variations. I will have a lot of fun with this . - 12/6/10

  • This was excellent. I used beef stock in place of the chicken stock. Will definitely make again. - 8/10/11
