While I usually get the quinoa mix with brown rice and garlic, I decided to try this, and it's outstanding! In fact, it's good enough to make and serve without anything added!

Add some chopped onions or veggies or your choice and enjoy the flavor!

So good

This is my favorite Quinoa blend, for a quick and easy meal. I've even gotten my boyfriend and his mother to try it, and they loved it too!

Way too salty with a weird taste

I really wanted to like this product but found it way too salty and just plain weird tasting. It just didn't taste natural

- Laura

A delicious quinoa

If you like quinoa, then you'll love this. It has an array of tastes to it, and I love the peppers in it. The quinoa is simple to make, something that you do in a skillet. It is simple to make, and it tastes great with every meal.
