Red quinoa is cooked with edamame, mango, red pepper and chillies before almonds, cranberries, fresh coconut and coriander are stirred in. A great dish to serve with spicy grilled meats.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock red quinoa, you can buy it online or substitute it in for white quinoa. Edamame can be purchased in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores.
Something was off about the proportions of ingredients in this recipe - definitely too much lime and chile pepper. - 31 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm all for interesting and unusual flavor combinations, and I love a good sweet/savory dish, but these ingredients just did not work together. Honestly, it tasted like I cleaned out my refrigerator. It needs some type of seasoning to tie everything together. It was also very oniony. I think you'd be better off omitting the edamame (which I love, but which just doesn't blend here) and red peppers, using red onions caramelized in coconut oil, and increasing the salt. Thanks, but this isn't a keeper for me. - 03 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
tasty! I switched lentils for edamame because I didn't have any on hand, reduced the onions to 3, and used a habanero pepper instead of serrano. Really a nice dish with a Caribbean flair! - 19 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
