    We really liked this I just made a few miner changes. I left out the bell pepper and instead of eggplant I used zucchini. It was really good and the fact that I was able to make half easily was a big plus.

    This is a GREAT one-pot recipe! Such an ingenious idea to saute the veggies first and then cook the quinoa in the same pan!!! Brilliant!
