Awesome. I used portabello mushrooms instead & salsa to spice it up.
This was surprisingly good. I had a leftover rotisserie chicken, so I shredded it and used that. My husband also loves mushrooms, so I used 2 cups and left out the squash. I also used 2 cups of chicken broth. I only had parmesan cheese, so I used that instead. Was delish. Almost all gone and there's just the 2 of us.
We like quinoa but this recipe was pretty bland. I would definitely suggest adding more squash and more spices but it will not be a repeat for us.
My family does not like quinoa, so I was very surprised that they loved this dish. I did make some substitutions. I dislike mushrooms, so I left those out. I also used butternut squash instead of acorn. After the casserole had simmered on the stove, it had soaked up all of the chicken broth, so I added another 1/4 cup before I put it in the oven. I am glad I added a little broth, because the casserole would have been dry without it. I also had only 4 oz of jack cheese, so I added 2 oz of parmesan cheese. Yum! I'm glad I added the parmesan. My daughter and I both felt that this casserole would have been better with a lot more squash.
I'd really like to give this a 3.5. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't phenomenal, either. My husband ended up really liking it, but we both agreed, it was something that grew on you. The first bite is kinda "eh", but as you eat more, the more you like it.
Very good! I also used a sweet potato instead of squash, ground turkey, and I toasted the quinoa first. My whole family loved it and asked for it again. This time I am using butternut squash. Thanks!
This was the second time I tried quinoa and it was a million times better! I subbed yam for the squash bt otherwise I stayed to the "T". The mushrooms were a great touch. I've already made this twice. Thank you SO much!
Delicous! My faimly and I have never had quinoa so good!
Tried this recipe from the magazine as well --- excellent. I added some brock and zuch as well to give it a little color the second time around. Really love it!!
