    So yummy. Only thing I would do is cook veges only for 20 mins as I like them crunchy but this was a huge hit in my house.

  • Great recipe. Super simple

    Great recipe. Super simple and tasty. Great for a mid week family meal. I didn't combine ingredients at the end, just topped quinoa with chicken and had veggies on the side. Combining everything probably would have tempered the spiciness which was a little too much for my 5yo but great for us.

    Very tasty and cheap! It makes so much!  And to top it off you cook everything together at once, so easy to make! This is a keeper!

  • Very nice, first time cooking

    Very nice, first time cooking quinoa in the thermomix and it worked well. A great recipe for cooking chicken, vegetables and quinoa all at the same time. I only used 2 tablespoons of the paste as my children were eating the meal, but it was too mild for us. Will definitely try 3 tablespoons next time.  Big Smile
