Recipe by LifeIsGood

This is the recipe that got me to like quinoa! It's really simple and tasty. Toasting the quinoa before cooking, gives it a really rich and nutty flavor. Don't skip that part! This recipe was developed by Sarah Matheny for her cookbook, "Peas and Thank You".

I made this for dinner last evening and I loved it with a poached egg on top and a drizzle of Franks Red Hot Sauce (I love that stuff!). A hot side salad of broccoli and cauliflower with herb vinaigrette completed a lovely meal for a very chilly fall evening.
