Notes

I tried this recipe last night, multiplying to serve three. It was easy and delicious. I had already prepared and had leftover Quinoa so I searched BakeSpace to find a recipe that had the ingredients already in my pantry/fridge and mixed the ingredients cold.

I accidentally switched the measurements for the two basalmic ingredients but it turned out ok. I used Trader Joe's Basalmic Vinagrette instead of Kraft. I will try it again with the right ratio next time. I also didn't have any mixed greens on hand but it works well without it too. I garnished with a Mary's Gone onion cracker, also made with Quinoa.

I served with a red pepper and tomato cream soup topped with parmesan, oregano and freshly ground pepper.
