    I love the nutty flavor of quinoa. This is so good and healthy for you. Remember when using quinoa you have to rinse, rinse, rinse.

      Fabulous! Loved it. I love quinoa and figs, so I was excited to find this recipe. The figs in this are like little sweet treats in every bite. This recipe is staying in my recipe box, so yummy!

      This was delicious ~ we loved the sweet flavor of the figs with the toasty flavor of the quinoa (I triple rinsed the quinoa before adding it to the sauteed garlic). The saffron gave this dish a nice color as did the chopped pimento. I had to use canned peas as I had no frozen ones, but it did not detract from this flavorful and colorful dish. DH was quite happy :) Made for ZWT5 ~ SPAIN!
