      This is my first time having Quinoa, and lad I chose this one. Served with Sea Scallops With Sauce Meuniere and loved it. I also followed Quinoa-Toasted prior to making it. Was really easy and loved the flavor of the cumin in it, with just the right bite from the chili powder.

      I really enjoyed this dish! At first I doubted it could be so good since it was so simple .. but it was! The quiona was incredibly flavorful and it had a slight kick but not too spicy at all. I used butter instead of oil, doubled the garlic, and toasted the quiona. It was my main dish so it served two!

      Excellent! A great substitute for Spanish rice. I removed the garlic and onions from the skillet after sauteing and then toasted the quinoa in the same pan. Once the quinoa was toasted I added the garlic and onions back into the skillet and then proceeded with the directions. I did omit the salt. I served it with Healthier Mexican Chicken Casserole . Thank you for the recipe!
