      Fantastic! The herbs in this recipe were a perfect combo for the quinoa. This was first attempt at preparing quinoa (other than adding a tablespoon to oatmeal). And I was a bit worried that I would have difficulty getting the consistency right. But that was not the case at all. This was a great recipe to learn from because the instructions were easy to follow, and the ingredient amounts were perfect. It all turned out beautiful! Thanks for sharing your recipe, CaliforniaJan. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
