"I have decided to eat for my blood type this year. This is a recipe from that book. Feel free to add anything that takes your fancy. I use no sodium vegetable broth in this, but find it does need a wee bit of salt to bring out the flavours."

I haven't had quinoa in quite some time and I will no longer let that much time pass by. What a great tasting quinoa, Luvcookn! Followed all as directed, except used the zest from a whole lemon and it wasn't too much. Came out light and fluffy and the feta pumps it up, making it super yummy. Thanks, Luvcookn, for sharing. Made it for Billboard tag.

Very good quinoa which we enjoyed. I also added the herbs while the quinoa was cooking which seemed to work well for us. Thanks for sharing!

I too cooked the herbs in the broth, to flavor it as much as I could. I loved it! I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and will have it again tonight. I left the flax seeds out and used sesame seeds instead, but other than that made the same. This is a great side that I will enjoy again. Thank you for sharing Patti! Linda

This is a great tasting quinoa recipe. The only change I made was add the fresh herbs to the quinoa as it was cooking. YUMMY!!
