Reviews For Basil Pesto Quinoa Meal

Based on 4 Reviews

Quick, easy, no lunch break approved

My husband only gets a 15 minute break for lunch and the line for the microwave is usually too long to be of any use. This was great for a quick and easy lunch that was was much tastier than "just a sandwich". His only complaint was that both the basil pesto and the artichoke flavors were a little vinegar-y. I didn't notice that at all but we figured there must be something to make the cooked quinoa shelf stable.
Will definitely purchase again!

Great quick meal

Simple and fast to prepare, not to mention the flavor - due to the awesome included sauce - that is delicious! Not a total meal in itself, so I add a steamed vegetable and some salmon on the side. The sides could be blended in with the basil pesto quinoa meal creating a dish fully satisfying to both one's palate and tummy!

Surprised at the package but the pesto was the freshest tasting with real pinenuts that I have tasted. Very filling and quick lunch. I heated the quinoa and then added the pesto. So delicious and nutrious.

Easy fix

Made this tonite, added some was really good and I no doubt will get more!
