This recipe is a good base to work with, but is lacking in seasoning. I added approximatley1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp oregano, a couple of drops of hot pepper sauce, and a pinch of salt. If you add the salsa, you may not need to do this. This would be good with some fat free plain yogurt on top, would work as a stuffing for peppers or zucchini, or could go in a wrap or taco as well.

Stir in your favorite jarred salsa for extra zing. Also good the next day for lunch.

I will definitely add this side into my rotation. Cooking for diabetics is not always easy. I might make some substitutions to up the GI (less quinoa in the ratio and more veggies), but overall this was quickly put together and tasted fabulous.
I didn't have salsa, so I added a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes. Yummy.
