    I made this recipe this evening with a couple of changes and loved it. One cup of quinoa cooked in two cups of chicken broth (about 14 mins) let stand for 15 minutes. I omitted the pine nuts. Will make again, good accompaniment to fish

    Follow the proportions in the recipe from Martha, unless you want it to be the consistency of mush!

    Because of the controversy over the amount of water necessary for the recipe, I cooked the quinoa according to the instructions found at in their lemon quinoa recipe. This method produced a VERY fluffy result which was delightful. Beyond the cooking method for the quinoa, I followed the MSL recipe exactly and it was utterly delicious! What a great combination of flavors. I will be making this again and again.

    Wrong proportions for the quinoa.

    My guess is the recipe is referring to 2 cups cooked quinoa - that would be 1 c dry to 2-21/4 c water when cooking. 4 c cooked quinoa seems like way too much for the other ingredients in the recipe.

    I just made this - but I increased the water to 4 cups, as 2 1/4 cups didn't seem like enough. I looked at several other recipes for quinoa, and they all had a two to one ratio of water to quinoa. Even the directions on my package said one cup quinoa to 2 cups water. Anyone have a problem with just the 2 /14 cups of water? Its delicious, by the way! taking it to a potluck dinner tonight.

    This is a lovely, flavorful side dish with just a bit of a crunch. It went great with the Roast Maple-Glazed Salmon at Topped off with some sautn n n n ed asparagus, it made a delicious, eye-pleasing meal.

    This was so easy and delicious. I served it as a room temperature salad similar to couscous and everyone loved it. It's a wonderful simple supper or dish for sharing/entertaining.
