First time I've tried this and loved it. I followed directions except at the end. Instead of chopped tomatoes, I topped with salsa and sour cream. Turned out just as I was hoping, and able to taste all the wonderful flavors that go into this

This was delicious! I expected it to be good, but something was perfectly simple yet fresh and bright and hearty. We prefer to eat vegan when possible, so I used veggie broth to fit our dietary needs. I only had 1/2 cup of quinoa so I decreased the amt of broth to just under a cup. Also only used 1/2 of a large tomato, 1/2 can of pinto beans, and didn't have any cilantro. I also thought the recipe called for red bell pepper (but it didn't) so I put in about 1/4 cup and it was great (good mistake). We served ours as a main dish and topped each serving with some of our favorite salsa and a small dollop of vegan sour cream. YUM!

absolutely loved this! I didn't have fresh tomato, so I used a can of diced. Worked good for me, because I like quinoa a bit "soupy" any way.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I also found it on Allrec but am glad it's here... I make this with veg broth and diced red bell pepper, sometimes tomato but not always. I never add the cilantro, as cilantro is my one true nemesis, but if you like it I'm sure it can't hurt. Make this food! It rocks.
