    I made up this side dish to be hot and spicy so it would be great with fish or chicken or just all by itself! Hope you enjoy it!

      Really delicious! Great flavors. I found this recipe last-minute as I was preparing dinner and wanted to have quinoa. The only change I made was I used canned butter beans, and the sun-dried tomatoes were marinated (ingredients I had on hand). This is a very nice combo of flavors, and quick to put together. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting a great recipe, Chef Lee!
