I've made farro before, but this was my first time making quinoa. We made the Three-Mushroom-and-Quinoa Salad from Food and Wine Magazine (Dec 2013, p. 240). I'm not a fan of this recipe. It was just blah. . . not flavorful. Perhaps, it was because we didn't include the pine nuts, but I highly doubt that.
One thing I did learn from making this recipe is that 3 cups of quinoa (which is what the recipe calls for) can feed an army. For 2 people, we should have made 1/2 a cup, and I think we'd still have leftovers.
If anyone has a great quinoa recipe I should try, please comment below!
