    Excellent flavor and texture. I added chipotle chili pepper. The cooking time must be a typo. Cook for 10 mins + cooling, not 1 min.

    I pressure cooked it as indicated but noticed the quinoa was undercooked and there wasn't enough stock for the quinoa to fluff up more. I added an extra cup of veggie stock (total 2 cups) and slowed cooked it for 1.5 hrs (in addition to the 1 min pressure cook). This made the quinoa extra fluffy and absolutely delicious!

    So good! Added lots of spice and extra cilantro (always!)

    This was really delicious, the quinoa goes very well with black beans. It actually tastes better than beans with rice.

    Really nice, recommend it, watch the liquids with the quinoa!

    Definitely go with the lesser water/broth for the quinoa, it’s better when not soft and rice-like. Tangy and tasty!

    This was very tasty and had good texture. I added chips and lettuce to make it more of a taco salad type dish. I will definitely make it again!
