    Loved it! I think next time I make it I will use the white quinoa though, I'm not really fond of the texture and crunchiness of the red. Cherry tomatoes would make a great addition to this also. - 2/11/11

    I made this tonight as a side with dinner. I made a swordfish dish that called for feta - so I used some from that portion and sprinkled on top of your Quinoa and it really boosted the flavor. Thanks for suggesting that. - 3/7/10

    Crumbled feta cheese is also really good. Just be sure to add it when the quinoa is still nice and hot so it fully melts.
