Modifications: I made a double batch – in one, I left the cumin out of the dressing since Kate hates it.
Time to table: 30 minutes prep
Servings: 4-5 adults
Annie: Dislike – her dinner that night was chips with a side of a few beans 😉 (not a big shock there)
Notes: I have a great many friends who have new babies, and wanted to bring a few of them a meal. I originally planned to bring Chicken Wild Rice Soup, but the 80 degree day didn’t seem to call for soup. I gave Kate a few choices, and she chose this! I totally messed up the quinoa the first time, cooking it far too long and forgetting to rinse it. Sorry about that, Kate and Kyle 🙂 The second time, I cooked it in chicken broth and checked it earlier and it turned out MUCH better. There was enough for us to have a dinner of it too, in addition to bringing a pretty large amount to Kate and Kyle. I do like meals like this, but they never seem to actually leave me feeling satisfied. Not enough fat for my liking, I guess!
The second batch, brought to Lori and Jeff – they asked for the recipe, so I know it was a win for them!
