This yummy and easy meal has quinoa, chicken stock, onion, garlic, peas, thyme, parsley and Romano cheese. It's quick and makes a great lunch or high fibre dinner.
If you don't want to fork out the bucks for Romano cheese, Parmesan or tasty work just fine.
Sounds good and I want to try it. But it says nothing about rinsing the quinoa so that the bitter saponins are removed. (Some quinoa, sold in North America, is pre-rinsed, but some is not...) Let's be careful out there! - 08 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this yesterday afternoon as a snack for my kids. It was delicious. My 18 month old gobbled it up. I would add more peas next time and not add them until the quinoa was almost cooked. I prefer my peas bright green and just barely cooked. I might also saute the onion and garlic in the butter while the quinoa was roasting, just to get more flavor from the garlic and onions. I thought this was very similar to risotto and might add shrimp next time to make it a full meal. Yummy! - 18 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I'm a self admitted tinkerer. Can't leave a recipe alone- mine included. That being said, this recipe is fantastic and here's what I did (no disrespect to the author). I added 4 sprigs fresh thyme ('cuz I had it), 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp grnd coriander, cayenne pepper and a few more peas (1 cup). This was a side dish for Baked Falafel and was superb! - 09 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
