Herbed Quinoa

After doing a little reading and research on quinoa, I decided to try this new food (for me) out for myself! With only a few ingredients in my pantry and garden, I made this simple but delicious summer recipe for a tasteful dinner. The only downside was Ella didn’t like it…so if you have a favorite quinoa recipe or one your kids eat…send it to me!
