This savoury quinoa can be eaten as a side dish or as a full dinner because quinoa is a complete protein. This dish has celery, carrots, onion, garlic and basil.

At first I was not blown away by the flavor- which there is plenty of- but as I was eating this the symphony of flavors were playing on my palette and I realized I really liked it. I made double the recipe without doubling the oil. I used chicken bouillion instead of vegetable broth (that's just what I had on hand). Also for some reason I imagined the directions had said to finely julienne the carrots, so I shredded them in a food processor instead of slicing them. I didn't have lime juice either. Otherwise I kept to the directions and it turned out great. There were no leftovers. My family loved it and at least one person had extra helpings. - 02 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was good and I will make it again, but with less oil. I will put the vegetables in at the same time as the broth, quinoa and spices, so they aren't overcooked. I think it needs one more spice, I'm just not sure what that is. I will also use a bit more onion and a bit less lime juice next time. - 05 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
