To review fairly, I was having some trouble as a bunch burned to the bottom of the pot while the rest remain uncooked-- this is the fault of my stupid wonky gas stove more than anything; words can't describe how much I hate that thing! I had to keep adding water throughout the cooking time (about 30 minutes) so more wouldn't burn. Otherwise, the flavor turned out very pleasant after I removed the burnt pieces and I did a half batch using a couple drops of storebought lemon juice and since I don't like pepper chunks, I used one of those little individual cups of Chi Chi's Snackers and tossed it in the blender with the other ingredients. That could be why it had a harder time cooking, but it's really because of how wonky my stove is and it burns stuff easily. Still a very pleasant slightly cheesy flavor though! I would make again once I have a real stove. Made for Veggie Swap 23.

The flavor was great in this! I halved the recipe and did have some trouble with it sticking on the bottom of the pan. I added a little more water and brought it up to a boil again, then turned off the heat and let it stand for about 15 minutes and it was done with minimal sticking and no burning(but I did have to stir it a bit). Thanks for a yummy way to eat quinoa!
