Very quick, really easy, healthy and yummy too! Added some salt and pepper at the end and liked the combination of flavours. Nice mid-week meal. Will make this again.

I loved this - just made it now as a way of using up some veg (had broccoli and carrots and used red onion in place of the leeks) I love quinoa for summer packed lunch salads but was looking for something more 'comforting' for the winter. I was a bit dubious how tasty this would be but it was lovely: I think the sun dried tomatoes are the key and really lift the flavour (I threw in a few extra as it was the end of the jar). Chop the broccoli into tiny florets or it's a bit crunchy, even for someone who loves their veg al dente like me. This will definitely become a regular and it's a bonus it's so healthy.

Had this this evening and it was yummy! Served it with some basil-tofu cut into flat pieces and griddled. Will definitely make again!

It was very easy and practical to prepare and cook. Aesthetically pleasing. The stir-fried vegetables added a delicious taste to the quinoa. Nice combination. I would cook it again. I've added a sprinkle of cheddar cheese to give it a bit more of flavour. It was delicious. I do recommend. Thanks for this recipe.

I loved this recipe. I added some mushrooms, zucchini and chilli. Very tasty! I'll often make it, also with cous cous.

The Bearded Hubby and I absolutely love this recipe and make it often. I'm not a huge fan of leeks, mind - have made it with them once but usually leave out in favour of red onion.

Really enjoyed this, however not the best quinoa recipe i have made. The vegetables mixed really well with the quinoa and made a very healthy and delicious dinner.

Really like quinoa but I wasn't overly impressed with this one. Don't think I'll be making this again x

Might not have looked inspiring, but it tasted delicious. Have never eaten quinoa before but the oil and lemon juice were just
the thing to make it into an alternative to pasta or couscous.

The recipe didn't look too inspiring, so I added some korma curry paste to the stock and also used fresh tomatoes in place of the dried. I chopped up and fried some paneer and stirred it into the finished dish and served with couscous and coriander instead of the quinoa. Went down well with the family.

This was ok for a midweek supper, but I am not sure I would rush to do it again.
