Pairs Well With
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.
