I totally made this one up, like I do with most all my recipes. It turned out really good, so I had to share. I'm always trying to incorporate new grains and get creative. I love quinoa, but my hubby always says it's so bland.. yadda yadda. I was on a mission to make him love it! Guess what, he loved it! The other thing I love about this one, is it's a ONE pot meal. Which means less dishes for momma.
