Made as recipe stated. Was too salty, would advise to cut salt down, or leave out completely. Would advise to add about 1/4 more quinoa. Would adjust the spices next time. Preferred it warm rather than cold.

Just finished making this and am eating it as I type. YUMMY! Plan to serve it in tomatoes for lunch for a friend so I wanted it to have time for flavors to meld. Boy!, if it's any tastier than it is warm, I might faint! lol! Two small changes: I used toasted quinoa as I find the taste is enhanced, and I smashed some roasted almonds to use instead of pine nuts. This is sure worth making over and over again....and as you can tell from my own recipes, I have a "thing" for quinoa!

Excellent--taste and presentation. Both for veggies and others too. Have made it several times already and will keep making it

This dish is absolutely gorgeous. So easy to prepare and so yummy. I'm new to cooking and I use this recipe over and over again. Everybody loves it. The flavors are just incredible, it's kind of like a paella. I really enjoy eating it. I also use veg broth to make it vegan. Thank you for posting it.

Yum! I used vegetable broth because I'm vegan. So good. My whole family loved it. Great hot or cold.

This was a very good pilaf. I think this would go very well in place of couscous when serving a moroccan dish. The spice mix in the recipe was very fragrant- the cardamom came through very nicely, making this the perfect light side dish to serve with a meal.
