      This is a darn good quinoa recipe and I think that fresh basil is essential. I made this in the summer with fresh field corn and made it for the day after and before Thanksgiving with frozen corn and it was very well received. The corn and the basil make great contrasting flavors. Goes with a lot of things and makes a special treat in the lunch box if their are left overs.

      I agree with a previous reviewer that this is a good starter recipe. The flavors are very light and you could add many things to make this dish more of a standout. We substituted scallions and tomatoes for the red peppers and red onions. A light, healthy dinner. Thanks for the recipe. We'll be making again.
