      I really enjoyed this dish. It is very creamy like risotto, only much faster to prepare without the constant stirring. It is also versatile with regards to vegetables on hand. For example I used snow peas, carrot, broccoli, and zucchini in last night's dinner (along with fresh garden basil). But you could really adapt this for what is in season. Very glad I tried this after seeing Starrynews' awesome picture. Thanks! [Made for Bargain Basement tag]

      Very nice, easy to prepare dish. For the ingredients with options, I used chicken broth, neufchatel cheese, and sweet onion, red bell pepper, sugar snap peas, and carrots for the vegetables. We enjoyed the combo of the crisp veggies with the creamy, fluffy quinoa. I added some chopped fresh oregano and parsley along with fresh basil from the garden and a sprinkle of pepper. Thanks for sharing!
