I did use a Brown Rice Quinoa Blend in mine, but you can easily use all Quinoa.  My husband is still on the fence about Quinoa, so if I use a 50/50 blend he doesn’t complain too much 😉

  1. My narrow-minded husband likely won’t ever be willing to try quinoa, but since he’s out of town this week and my daughter and I are doing “meatless Mondays”, I’m making this right now. It smells so good. If it tastes even half as good as it looks and smells, I think we have a new recipe to add to our regular line-up. (I can always throw something else on for the hubby when he is home.)

    • Oh, and I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth to keep it “meatless”. It turned out great!

  2. I’m nervous to try quinoa but this recipe is one of the first ones that looks like I would actually try it! I’m picky about the texture of my food. This looks yummy! Thanks for linking up with delicious dishes recipe party!
