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 like this: rinse it and and drain it, and then put it in a pan and dry toast until a few grains begin to pop.

I decreased the liquid to 1.5 cups and used beef broth (I had to use it up) and I think that gave it a good flavor. I also used red, yellow and orange peppers, so it was a pretty red-colored dish with the potatoes and green beans I served it with. The quinoa gives a great source of complete protein!



The flavour of this was good, but it was mushy and soggy. There must be an error in this recipe. it calls for 3/4 cup of quinoa and 4 CUPS of veggie broth. From what I've read quinoa need a 1:2 ratio (quinoa to liquid) I tried doubling the quinoa. It made a HUGE batch, way more than a family of 4 could eat. I imagine if you reduce the liquid to 1 1/2 cups it might be good. I will try it again.
