  • Very good. Added some asparagus and scallions to decrease the amount of quinoa in a single serving. Added lemon zest although lime zest would work well and used apple cider vinegar instead of lime juice - 6/14/12

  • Very good! Of course, I can't just follow a recipe to the tee. I cooked the quinoa in chicken broth. If going vegetarian, I am sure veggie broth would work too. Just adds another dimenision to the flavor. - 7/15/09
