A robust and well-flavoured quinoa dish. It's made by stirring basil pesto and chopped tomatoes through cooked quinoa. Fabulously easy and healthy, it is the perfect side dish to any meal. Use vegetable stock if you want a vegetarian dish.
It was very easy and tasty. I added half a pack of salad to it. It looked good on the side of pan-fried salmon with lemon wedges. - 31 Oct 2010
I hadn't thought of serving quinoa with pesto before so this recipe was a great idea starter for me. As well as the pesto, I added lots more tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chopped olives, chopped spinach, pine nuts and ate the whole thing with a little grated Parmesan on top. Delicious! - 10 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was deeeeeeelicious. I love pesto, so this was perfect for me. I felt like it needed something else, though... so I added a can of chickpeas and it was great. - 02 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
