    TajLV's Note:

    I based this quick and easy stir-fry recipe on a recommendation from Trader Joe's. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American grain, lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat than white rice.

      So good! I didn't have basil so I used fresh spinach. Awesome! I also cut the olive oil back to 3T. I will make again! Want to try it with the basil.

      I really enjoyed it. I used and love the new tubes you can find of minced basil, which made this a bigger cinch to put together. The flavors were great, and it was a different way of using quinoa. Thank you for sharing.

      We thought this was fantastic! We used this recipe for our first quinoa experience and were pleasently surprised. We used veggie broth instead of chicken and instead of fresh peppers we used slightly thawed frozen stir fry mix. Everything blended well together. Our chicken did leave quite a bit of juice in the pan but we just used a slotted spoon. Thanks for sharing!
