This makes for great lunch box or picnic fare. When we have it for dinner, we double the recipe because it makes for good leftovers, too! The recipe calls for the quinoa to be boiled like pasta, but I prefer simmering it like brown rice, so I’ve adjusted the water in the ingredient list accordingly (you may have to use up to 2 c.) and have rewritten the directions.
