    Rita~'s Note:

    Quinoa, the principal grain of the Incas, is high in protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. Rinsing the quinoa very well before cooking effectively eliminates its slightly bitter "green" taste. I found this recipe at WholehealthMd.com This would be great stuffed into pork chops.

      This is the recipe I've been looking for! I like my grains a little drier so in the future I'll try using less water, but otherwise it was great. The cherries plump up and add such a nice suprise to the pilaf. Thank you Rita!

      i used craisins instead of dried cherries since that was what i had at home. came out perfect and is now a staple in our home.

      I too agree this lacked flavour, maybe adding some herbs would give it a boost, I used vegetable broth instead of water which I would say helped but still wasnt enough. Has potential though.
