Very good, I'm on weight watchers so I modified the recipe some to start. I cut out the olive oil completely! Sprayed my pan with some olive oil spray and fried the veggies, poured the dry quinoa on top and sprayed it then stirred, then added the juice/water. I had no walnuts so i toasted pecans instead, they were perfect! I used half the amount of raisins and still though they were a bit much. Next time I will cut back some more and add extra spice 1Tbsp was not enough for us. All in all, excellent!

I followed the advice in other reviews and omitted the cilantro (my husband hates), and halved the pumpkin pie spice. It was a big hit at a church gathering, especially with the vegetarians in the group. I didn't have walnuts, but would add them next time, it would take it up a notch. Be prepared for your house to smell wonderful as an added bonus!

This recipe is very good. Very flavorful! I omitted the onion (because I'm breastfeeding) and the cilantro (I'm not a fan). It still was fabulous!
