Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was absolutely the worst dish I ever made for my family. This was absolutely the worst dish I ever made for my family. There was no flaor and the quinoa was totally tasteless. We ended up making deli sandwiches for dinner and the whole dish went into the trash. Just incredibly awful.

I never made quinoa before - it tasted like couscous to me, but it's much more nutritious mased on the package info. I plan to make this again tonight.
