"Although I've generally avoided quinoa in the past, I made this and loved it. I used my own (very flavorful) vegetable stock which I do in a big slow cooker. The choice of fresh vegetables in the recipe, along with just the right amount of salt (Himalayan) and pepper, made this quinoa dish one that I wanted to do again. Not today though; I have lots leftover for supper."

This was a pretty good side dish for dinner but I made it with less water so the quinoa would fully absorb the liquid and still have a bit of texture.

This was my first time to try quinoa and this recipe was so easy and yummy too!

This is a very good quinoa dish! I used chicken stock in place of vegetable broth. I used the food processor for the carrots, red peppers and garlic. So flavorful, will definitely make this again!

I love this recipe. I added a little fish sauce and wheat/gluten free tamari as well just for an Asian kick. Thank you for this recipe.

Didnt have any red bell pepper so I left that out and added a little extra carrot. I also seasoned with Adobo instead of salt and pepper and used chicken broth instead of veggie. The whole family loved it!

Very simple and versitile dish. I add paprika, cayene, and edemame instead of peas. Or, just through in good Indian spices for a real treat!
