    It went prefect with my tuna steaks.

    It was good but I’ll probably add some other spices next time because I like garlic but that’s basically all I was like I was eating straight minced garlic.

    Really good. Could use double the parsley and garlic as well as some other spices.

    a little salty. i think i added too much bouillon to the water. After reading the reviews I added twice as much garlic which i sauteed first, also I added green onions. it was really good. I will make it again!

    It was fine, but did not have much taste. If I made it again, I would double the garlic and sauté it first to bring out the flavors. I would also need to add other spices or maybe sautéd onions or shallots. Not bad just very bland.

    Tastes good but was a little watery

    Followed the recipe, it s nice, maybe could spice it up with other flavours too. I don’t think this is enough for 8 people.

    Delicious and easy to make-used chicken broth and it took 30 mins to simmer to get all liquid out of quinoa but will make again.

    I halved the recipe and didn’t add as much garlic/butter for a more subtle taste. It’s good!
