OK so I saw this recipe in a magazine I was flipping through at work one day. It looked so good that I decided to jot it down. Silly me I forgot to write down the name of the magazine. I'm slowly becoming addicted to Quinoa and any new recipe is definately worth a try. I'm glad I tried this one. Very good!
