Quinoa with Peas Recipe
Seasoned with Pecorino Romano cheese, this is a delicious quinoa side dish that goes with just about anything.
This recipe is a great cold-weather comfort food--it is creamy, rich, and hearty.
This delicious recipe was presented to me by a vegan friend. The lime juice gives the quinoa a fresh flavor that can't be beat!
A lemony pilaf is a perfect showcase for this delicate grain. For an even more flavorful pilaf, use vegetable stock in place of the water.
A light curry flavor makes delicious quinoa a great side dish for a multitude of main courses.
Whether you're trying quinoa for the first time or just trying a new recipe for quinoa, this mixture of quinoa, black beans, corn, and spices will make this dish a new favorite.
So, I misread the recipe (didn't have on my glasses) and put the cheese in with the peas. So, I am rating on the flavor. I didn't rinse the quinoa first because I thought wet toasted quinoa sounded like a bad idea. The toasting gave it a richer nutty flavor. Thanks for the idea and I will use this technique again. I rated on the flavor since I messed up the cheese. Nice side dish!
Added some shredded carrots along with the onion, garlic, and celery. Only had 1 & 1/2 cup of quinoa and more than doubled the amount of peas and it still came out beautifully... and delicious! It smells amazing, I love the hint of coconut from the coconut oil. Quinoa lovers will adore this meal. Thanks for the great recipe!
This is my favorite quinoa dish now! I made the changes suggested by another review and added 1/2 tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, more thyme and it was excellent. This is definitely going in my recipe book!
