I thought all the flavors were amazing. I love cilantro and I love the pepitas. In my family these ingredients get used quite often so adding it to the quinoa seemed like a no brainer. I will be making this over and over again.

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

This was really good. I only had about a half cup of cilantro on hand and used just 1 tablespoon of lime juice. I love cilantro and I think 1/2 cup was ok.
I added a can of canned shrimp, it was great!
I'm not a fan of cilantro, so I only used 3T chopped cilantro. For me, that was still way too much. The lime was very overpowering as well. Next time, I'd do this with chopped spinach and cut the lime by half. The toasted pepitas were a great addition though!
Love this recipe! I didn't have any canned chilies and used pickled jalapenos instead. Great in a wrap with goat cheese and spring mix with a little salad dressing.
This quinoa recipe is so amazing. My fiance really likes quinoa, but this is the first recipe he has requested over and over. We both love it and I'm sure it will be a regular for us for years to come. I often make double batches.
