I loved this! First time to try Quinoa, and I was pleasantly surprised. This is a meal in itself, and I devoured it! Thanks for sharing!

Loved this low calorie, protein balanced, low sodium, high fiber dish. Not to forget this is so full of flavor. Loved the cumin, lime and cilantro. I did forget to roast the seeds but still was delish. Made for ZWT 20111. Thanks!

I've had quinoa in the pantry for some time, and decided this recipe would be a great way to try it. We were not disappointed. It had great flavor and was a hearty dish. We thought the texture of the quinoa was somewhat similar to couscous. The only thing I'll do differently next time is to add some hot peppers for a spicier dish.

This was the first time I have cooked quinoa. I enjoyed the flavors in the dish, but thought that the texture was a little heavy. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers

Thanks FN! Used this as a side dish to Floridanative's Pinto Bean Burritos but I think it would also make a fantastic main with some steamed greens! I haven't used quinoa too much and if I can find more recipes like this one I will me using it a lot more! Made for ZWT 7 for the team The Hot Pink Ladies!

I haven't even reached the point of adding the fresh cilantro and the pepitas and this is to die for. Comfort food at its finest--healthy, low fat, low sodium, high in protein and loaded with flavor! Mil gracias!

This tastes great! I really like the texture that the roasted pepitas add. Next time I will make it a little more spicy ;-)
