Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I tried these the other day and I couldn't stop raving about them! If you're someone who thinks recipes don't have enough seasoning then you're in for a treat. The quinoa was seasoned to perfection and the pepper was just the right texture. I will make this again and again!
