This is a very good quinoa dish; I'm adding it to my regular rotation! Personally, we will want to tweak it a little; these herbs are not favorites, but without them the dish definitely needed more flavor. Otherwise, I love the combination of ingredients!
I really enjoyed this very much. However, there were a few things I substituted. I used canned pineapple and the juice (I only buy fruit in it's own juices.) I already had a huge bag of salted cashews in the freezer, so I used them (salted rather then unsalted.) I didn't have peanut oil, so I used coconut oil. I used green onions instead of scallions knowing they are in the same family and cheeper. I didn't have hot red pepers, so I used jalapenos (which made it a little too spicy. I'd cut down on them next time.) I didn't find edamame, so I used frozen peas as suggested. I used dried basil (use 1/3 the amount of dried b/c dried is more potent.) Finally, I didn't have vetgetable stock, so I used chicken broth. I plan to make this often.
This dish is so delicious!! Wonderful recipe from an wonderful cookbook!! I love the mix of flavors. I have made this using both quinoa and couscous.
I make this without the chili pepper (never have one on hand) and I love it. It tastes fresh and is so satisfying. I definitely recommend adding extra pineapple, maybe up to 3 cups. I also use peas sometimes instead of edamame.
This is a favorite recipe of mine! :-) Refreshing & yummy ... I took it last night to a pot luck & it was a hit! :-)
