The Verdict

We’ve been eating more quinoa lately in an attempt to get more fiber into our diet. This recipe is totally vegan, and works both as a side dish or the main event. Simmering the quinoa in flavored vegetable stock is a great touch; they came out even more flavorful than when boiling in water.

For some reason I expected to bake these before they were done, but the recipe made no mention of that, so I simply left the tomatoes raw. As a result, this is an especially refreshing thing to enjoy on a muggy Florida evening. I happen to think tomatoes are better raw anyway.

Thoughts for next time:

  • I must have picked some truly big tomatoes, because they were barely half-stuffed by the time I was done. Next time, add more quinoa, or find smaller tomatoes.
