"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."

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!!
