      These just seemed to be lacking something to me. I was expecting a lot more flavor. I wasn't particularly fond of the mushrooms with chili power I guess. Not a bad recipe, just not for me.

      Very, very good. Ours came out a little "saucy" but I suspect it was because our quinoa didn't puff up as much as normal. I think this would be great with some setan diced in for a little bit of a meaty texture. I'd also wayyy up the spicy count next time- some cumin or red pepper flakes.

      Very good! I used canned diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and my husband and I really liked it. Think I might add some grated cheese next time. Thanks very much!
