I finally made the quinoa primavera tonight, and was it tasty. The quinoa is cooked in water, not broth, which might seem as though it would limit the flavor profile of the dish, but I was pleased to taste that that isn't the case. The cooked quinoa is added to a mixture of red onion, asparagus, green peas, garlic, chicken, and spinach, so the flavor profile is actually quite robust. The variety of textures in the dish, too, is very pleasing.
Considering the facts that a) the whole thing takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish; b) it really is a complete meal in one bowl (lots of veg, ample protein); and c) it's just plain old pretty to look at, I'd say this dish is definitely a winner.
