    Mirj's Note:

    This recipes comes from a fellow Israeli foodie, Gabi Shahar. I tried it out recently (am on a quinoa kick these days) and it's very good. A good alternative to tabbouli or couscous as a cool summer grain salad.

      This was my first time trying quinoa, and I liked it! This recipe turned out well for me. I used cooking spray instead of all that oil. Tasted good, no strong flavours. Thanks for introducing me to this great new grain!

      We will be making quinoa much more often now that we have this recipe, because it's truly delicious. I was kind of concerned at using water instead of broth thinking that the grain might be too bland, but the herbs and lemon were just strong enough to create a pleasing taste with plenty of flavor. The lemon isn't overpowering either, but just perfect. I have a bit left over and I think I'll try making a salad with it in the morning. I'm passing this recipe on to quite a few family members who I hope will become quinoa converts too. Thanks so much Mirj for sharing this recipe with us.

      My family was torn on this dish. We liked the flavors, just not sure we like quinoa. I'm glad we tried it, we will try again to see.
