Hubby and I both enjoyed this recipe. Very nice blend of spices. I used two cloves of garlic for added flavor. I didn't have raisins, so I used currants and they worked very well. I suggest using a little less than 2 cups of broth. My quinoa was done and there was still quite a bit of liquid left which led to a bit of a mushy texture. The only change I would make is to use fresh cilantro. The 1/2 tsp of dried cilantro added no flavor. I loved the roasted red peppers mixed in and the crunch from the almonds. This quinoa would also be good served cold the next day.

Outstanding flavors. After the allotted time there was extra liquid as mentioned by another reviewer, I left the pot on med-low with the lid off and evaporated the extra, stirring a few times. Roasted my own peppers and a couple heads of garlic, then squeezed a few cloves into the dish since we love garlic. The crunch of the nuts is necessary for some variation, so if you don't prefers nuts maybe add something else with some crunch. Served cold, this would be great with diced cucumber. I also thought it could be brightened up just a bit, so we served with crumbled feta atop. Will definitely make this again and look forward to having cold leftovers.

I really liked this recipe. My kids thought it was ok. Next time to make it more kid friendly I will use dried cherries and sunflower seeds instead of raisins and nuts. I also sauteed bell pepper with the onion (yellow) instead of using roasted pepper. Will definately make again.
