This recipe is very simple, and I found using fresh basil a nice touch. To avoid a mushy quinoa, you definitely need to cut the stock down to 2 cups, but it also helps if you prep the quinoa li...

This was delicious! I used 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups of homemade turkey broth to make it less soupy.

This would get 5 stars from me if the liquid was adjusted to 2 cups so it wasn't so soggy. Still, we ate it all and my teen son even went back for seconds.

Soooo good and even better the next day for lunch. Even my roommate liked it and he's super picky.

I whole heartedly agree with the other reviewers regarding the soupiness. This would have 4 stars had I cut down the broth-quinoa ratio. Definately omit 2 cups of water.

This recipe taste good but it was to watery. I followed the exact recipe but I expected it to come out like rice where the liquid is absorbed into the quinoa. I'll try less stock next time.
