"I got this recipe from a friend who was living in Ecuador. Quinoa was a staple of her diet there; it is a great source of protein."

I hadn't thought of serving quinoa with pesto before so this recipe was a great idea starter for me. As well as the pesto, I added lots more tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chopped olives, chopped...

This was deeeeeeelicious. I love pesto, so this was perfect for me. I felt like it needed something else, though... so I added a can of chickpeas and it was great.

Quick and easy for a main dish or a side dish. I added sliced carrots at the end with the tomatoes for more color and some crunch. My husband had seconds!
