Quinoa is a nutty seed native to South America. It can be found in most health shops. For an even more flavorful pilaf, use vegetable stock in place of the water.
Something else. This recipe was very very good. I recommend lots of onions, carrots, celery and peas. Use a large dice for the onions, carrots, and celery. I used chicken stock instead of water and it was absolutely delicious. It was extremely quick and easy as well. This recipe is great for you and it tastes good too!!! - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Substitued veg. stock for the water - used soybeans instead of peas, green pepper instead of celery. Came out pretty tasty. Definitly packed with protein due to quinoa and edamame! - 24 Jul 2008
