      Super easy and tasty! It needed salt, but that was a simple fix. And it really does work with any kind of cheese. I only had pecans and goat cheese and it was FABULOUS. Thanks for sharing!

      I'm new to quinoa but I loved this recipe. I used too much garlic (two cloves) & omitted the salt. Very yummy!

      I made this vegan by omitting the parmesan. I certainly didn't miss it; this dish was plenty flavorful without it. I LOVE quinoa but had never tried the technique of toasting it in oil before cooking it. That made it really nice and tender with a nuttier flavor. I used veggie broth instead of water and Braggs Liquid Aminos instead of salt. My basil had gone bad so I garnished with parsley instead. I will definitely make this again since it is such an easy, healthy, tasty meal, perfect for weeknights! Reviewed for Veg*an Swap, April 2010.
