Original recipe was for quinoa only and pistachio nuts. I'm changing it up and am using a quinoa rice blend ( quinoa,brown & white rice, basmati, wild and red rice) I found at Fresh Market and substituting pecans instead. Optional ingredients: feta or goat cheese. This recipe is versatile enough for you to be creative and make it your way!
