  1. I have to agree. This dish is absolutely surprising. It’s filling but not leaving you feeling stuffed. The quinoa in this meal is the most important ingredient, and the fruit can switched with other combinations of fruit. The only suggestion I would make, is to add vanilla. I think it would give this added flavor.Very, very good.

    1. Welcome Back Larry!
      vanilla would be an excellent addition to this recipe! The next time I make it, I will have to add some. In the original recipe, I used plain quinoa, but I have also made it using tri-colored quinoa, and the result was amazing! The dish has a nuttier flavor to it. Why don’t you try making it with tri-colored quinoa and let me know what you think.
      Thanks for stopping by!
