Cook's Tips

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. Rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating, if it is not pre-washed.

Excellent! Will be making this often.

This was our first time trying quinoa. It was very easy & quick. I used Ranch dressing instead of blue cheese since we don't like it. Four out of five in my family loved it including my very very picky 11 yr old son. He doesn't like much but he does like buffalo chicken. My 7 yr old daughter doesn't like buffalo sauce so I wasn't surprised she didn't like it. Will definitely try again.

This was really good and so easy! My husband said that I should make this on Sundays for him to take for lunch ALL WEEK! We did not use the Blue Cheese Dressing and it was still quite delicious and moist.

Don't like blue cheese. Would ranch dressing work as well or do you have another suggestion?
