Recipe by WI Cheesehead
From Delicious Living. This is very versatile. I subbed chopped zucchini for the raisins and it turned out great.

This is a great recipe. I soak the quinoa in the water for fifteen minutes otherwise it does not get fully cooked. It keeps well in the refrigerator so I make a double or triple batch.
