    I really enjoyed this dish but i added few things to make it a little more interesting, & i enjoy very flavouful dishes. I cooked the quinoa in vegetable stock. I used 1 full red onion, 250grams of a mixture of mushrooms, soy sauce instead of tamari, 3 fresh small chillis from my garden. I then oven roasted a punnet of cherry tomatoes and added them right at the end for some sweetness. (Sundried toms will also work well) It was absolutely delicious and very simple to make. I look forward to having it again!!

    I’m a new cook. Probably didn’t do it properly so recipe was very bland

    Really good, I bought brown quinoa instead of the regular one, never had cooked it before so it turned out a bit hard. But not the recipe’s fault, What I loved about this dish was the mushroom sauce, totally think it would go with a nice steak as well. Would make again.

    Pretty good! I used red kale instead of spinach because I had it on hand. It wasn’t bad but didn’t wilt as quickly as the spinach would. Also added a small slice of avocado to the ‘sauce mixture.

    Got it going and then realized I was out of onions and garlic! Substituted with powders and it was still good. Will be making this again.

    It turned out well! Especially if you like mushrooms. I used a whole onion instead of 1/2. I made it with a side of roasted broccoli to have a different texture

    Cook times were a bit off considering my gas range instead of electric, but flavor was great.

    I used tri-colour quinoa and shiitake mushrooms. Very flavourful! Tamari almonds would be a great addition

    This was so easy to make and it turned out delicious and filling, we will be making again for sure. I had some tamarind almonds kicking around so I blended about a half cup of them into the sauce with a bit of extra water. It really gave the sauce a more rounded and nutty flavour.
