Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I didn't have high expectations of this, but with a few additions it was great! I used the suggestions to use fat free feta and double it, and added roasted red peppers.
I think it needed salt and pepper and maybe some good olives.
Really good basic recipe. I made it just as it is written, only minced my garlic instead of sliced. It was tasty, but next time I will add some more veggies as other members have suggested. Great high protein, vegetarian meal. Low sodium chicken broth instead of water would be good for non-veggies.
Quinoa has a lower CHO profile than rice. It is a seed and rice is a cereal seed with 33% more CHO. Quinoa has twice as much potassium and iron per 1/2 cup than brown rice and more resistant starch so it helps to keep the blood glucose in better control and lower in calories than brown rice.
