    Disappointing. The only real flavor I got was from the quinoa - and that's because I cooked it in chicken stock. Beyond that, it took a bunch of salt and pepper to start to get flavor. I used almost a teaspoon of each, which is unheard of for me since I am salt-averse (the lesser the better). Finally resorted to adding about a half teaspoon of lemon juice to brighten the little bit of flavor the dish offered. Ultimately, it was rather a waste of a perfectly good red pepper and some wonderful baby bella's (which tossed with some red wine, would have been a really nice topping for a steak).

    Turned into kind of an Asian bowl, added teriyaki and sweet chili sauce to it for some flavor. Loved it after mixing that in there!

    I added extra capsicum and mushrooms and also peas for more protein. It's very good. I made this in bulk so i can have it a few times this week for my lunches, but had to stop myself from eating it all now. Hehe!

    Yummy and simple! Pretty bland so have to add your own seasoning to it

    I added chilli flakes to mine and it turned out lovely! My only criticism of this recipe is that it could call for more flavour but otherwise easy to follow and a lovely side dish/lunch :)

    Great recipe but like other comments suggested you have to make your own seasoning else the plate comes out really bland

    Wow! I honestly did not expect it to turn out this good! I am definitely going to start making this on a weekly basis

    This was absolutely amazing!!! I also added roasted broccoli & roasted curly kale leaves to the red peppers & mushrooms, since I had a little inside my fridge! My fiancé loved this Quinoa!
