  1. Mix the quinoa and water in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until all the water is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the dried pineapple, dried mango, coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, hot and regular mango chutney until thoroughly combined. Serve hot.

This was good. It was very sweet - so I would like it more for a snack than with dinner. I made my own chutney so only added "regular" chuntey and no "hot" chutney (my mom doesn't do spicy). I would like a little more quinoa for the amount of "mix-ins". Definitely a nice recipe though!!!



Go easy on the macadamia nuts, or chop them finer because too many makes this dish way too crunchy. The dried fruit is nice, but this recipe is better if you just use fresh fruit. The dried fruit makes it kind of gummy and difficult to chew. Otherwise it still tastes good.



Ridiculously delicious. I had to substitute mango salsa for the chutney, but it was fantastic. Best recipe I've tried on here yet.
