UNTIL... I found this recipe for a warm quinoa salad with edamame. Initially, I was skeptical (I'd been burned before), but this ended up being delicious. Simple, bright, citrus-y, and incredibly easy to make. Plus, it has inspired a major enthusiasm for edamame in me! And, John thought it was awesome too, so presumably I wasn't just distracted by the healthy qualities of the quinoa and edamame.
TIPS & NOTES
This has definitely opened me back up to quinoa-- and it should be mentioned that the chilled leftovers make a superb lunch! I think this recipe might be my next experiment now that I'm back in the saddle...
