  • Cook's Note
  • I used Roland(R) brand for the red quinoa, and Knorr(R) for the bouillon cube. I also prefer the quinoa a little underdone. Hope you enjoy this.

Very simple, very tasty. Thank you. BTW when you change a recipe by decreasing the spices in it, well it's not quite fair to call it bland, now is it?

Excellent and simple. The Chinese 5-spice was a nice and I used fresh ginger instead of powdered.

The Chinese five-spice flavor was over whelming. Unless you want a very strong flavor of 5-spice cut the amount added. I will make it again and add only enough 5-spice to taste a hint of it.
