  1. Hi Tanya,

    This dish looks deliscious. I’ve never tried kinoa either. I imagined it tasted like you said…sawdust or something like that. But since you like it and I think we have familiar taste in food I might have to try this.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe! Hope it’s been a great week! Have a great weekend hun!

    • Yeah, I hate “good” food that tastes like sawdust, bleach! Plain quinoa is pretty bland, sort like any rice or pasta, I guess. It’s what you flavor it with that makes it yummy, but unlike pasta and rice, quinoa has a much higher nutritional value.

    • I’ve been so-so on quinoa too, because it can be so bland and occasionally bitter. I find it’s a lot like couscous for me. Boring on its own, but if paired with some that have a yummy juice/sauce, then I really enjoy it. These is nice because the lemon gives it some bite, so it stands okay on it’s own. And it was really good with the citrus cod but I made extra that I ate alone and it was still delicious.

    • It really is healthy and tasty, which I love because it seems like I always love the really tasty and not-so-good recipes. 🙂 I need to incorporate more healthy dishes into my diet, which I have been doing a better job at this year but I also have had a big craving for some pasta too! Moderation and baby steps, right? 🙂
