Thanks to Todd Grimes for this Spanish Quinoa recipe. We made a few minor changes, but his directions made perfect sense.
Todd's Easy Vegan Spanish Quinoa Recipe is a variation on the Spanish rice served in Mexican restaurants - but it's so much better!
Worlds apart, really, because that's rice and this is quinoa.

Quinoa is light, delicious, high protein, easy to cook. It can be used in place of rice, bulgar, or couscous. More quinoa info & tips
