      We loved this! I've been looking for more ways to incorporate quinoa into my diet and this will be a frequent repeat. I didn't have garlic oil, so I just added 1/4 tsp garlic powder to some olive oil and that worked well. Thanks for posting!

      Very easy to make and suprisingly tasty. Loved all the fresh ingredients and especially the quinoa. A wonderfully healthy meal that also tastes great. I have made this many times and my wife and I will continue to make it in the future.

      Loved it! This would be great for a lunch or a super unique dish to share at a potluck event. Unfortunately, my husband didn't like it at all, served as a dinner entree. I used red (heirloom) quinoa.
