This was easy and a delicious side for the yogurt chicken I made the other night. My sister raved about this and my husband, who normally prefers bulgur and other grains to quinoa, really enjoyed it. If you haven't had quinoa before, this is an easy and tasty dish to start with! Feel free to substitute other vegetables you have on hand or prefer.
