Oh my goodness! SO GOOD! I did change the vegetable oil to Organic EVOO (vegetable oil is only one step away from plastic!). It was rich, wonderful and satisfying! I did add a couple roasted cloves of garlic to the dish as well and it made it even richer! GREAT RECIPE!
I made a couple of changes based on personal preference. First off the bacon was reduced to 2 slices and the vegetables were sauteed then added to the quinoa after it had cooked in chicken broth. This was delicious and went very well with grilled pork chops.
My first attempt at quinoa. It was delicious and really easy to make. Substituted celery for the green pepper and it was exellent.
I couldnâ€™t wait to make this recipe. Even though we donâ€™t eat pork or bacon I decided to substitute with vegetarian fresh bacon. The taste is pretty close and we can save the calories and the fat. I used vegetable broth instead of beef. Because I changed the foundation of the taste I donâ€™t think it would be fair to rate it low. The rest of the ingredients blended nicely and we love quinoa. Thank you
Wow!! I was skeptical of this one right up until the first bite. I don't like mushrooms as a rule and I'd never tried quinoa, but I had decided to let zaar help me broaden my culinary horizons so I trusted it (I even brought the salt and pepper to the table thinking I'd need it but I certainly did not!!) This will become part of my regular recipes. Thanks Di for posting it.
