Cilantro, lime and scallions lend a bright finish to delicate quinoa. This versatile side pairs well with seafood, poultry or pork.

My husband likes it!

Quinoa is on my husband’s list of foods he only eats under protest. I like it so I keep trying to find preparations to change his mind. This is the first one that worked. I honestly think he only really likes it because of the green chilies but regardless, Mr. Anti-Quinoa LIKES it!

The pumpkin seeds definitely add some nice flavor and texture. This recipe does make quite a bit so we can often have it as a side at dinner a couple of nights and then still have some for a main-dish at lunch. I like that it doesn’t take long to make.

great flavors, easy

Flavorful

I am not a huge fan of grains, but I have to admit that this was very flavorful. One of my favorite ingredients in this recipe was the toasted pepitas. They were a great addition to this recipe. This recipe made more than three of us could eat, so next time I would definitely cut it in half.

Great Protein Dish

Who cares about the calories when you have all that protein! Great dish that is so versitile to add meat or other veggies etc -- love the texture of quinoa and always looking for new recipes.

I thought this was a little blah-second time I made it used 1/2 cup white wine and 1cup broth, only 1.5tbs lime juice, 4-5 shakes of the garlic salt, 3 shakes of paprika and cayenne pepper. Not too hot but added a nice flavor. Also, don't skip the toasting part of the pepitos - really makes a difference. Could sub w/pecans, walnuts etc.

quick, easy ingredient list, very versitile

Awesomeeee recipe!!! The only problem is that the lime you can put in is pretty touchy. Mine came out tasting too limey, but that was my only complaint- so easy, and so good for you!!
