  • Incredible!
    This made for an absolutely delicious dinner - thank you! I added broccoli (at the end so it steamed up just right) and then sprinkled just a touch of parmesan cheese on it to serve. Quinoa has recently become one of my favorite foods and I love finding different ways to eat it. Thanks so much! - 9/20/10

    Easy, yummy, and good for you! What more could anyone ask? (OK someone to come cook it for you, and do the dishes after wards, but other then that.) - 3/19/10

    Very good! I didn't add the scallions or fresh black pepper (didn't have either). I added spinach, though, because it's my favorite! - 3/7/10
