    The sauce in this recipe is really delicious. I plan to make it and pour it over gluten-free pasta and then bake it that way as I find th texture of the quinoa a little slimy. Thanks very much for this recipe.

  • This was so yummy, I planned

    This was so yummy, I planned to try freezing it but there was none left  tmrc_emoticons.) I didn't have enough cashews so used a combo of peanuts, macadamia and cashew. Is a great base to add other things like cheese and bacon or tomato. Obviously that makes it NOT GF, DF or vegan

  • Love this recipe. The first

    Submitted by sinstress on 16. July 2014 - 20:40.

    Love this recipe. The first time I made it we were out of spinach, so I added some baby kale instead. I also use the sauce recipe now to use on potato and pasta bakes. The whole family loves it tmrc_emoticons.)
