      Excellent! I have two daughters home for the summer that follow the vegan way of eating. I found this recipe was a great way to make one meal for the entire family. The filling has an excellent flavour. It would be nice on its own.I did not have mushrooms so I substituted celery. I substituted parsley for corriander.

      *Made for My 3 Chefs* Delicious! This is a great way to use quinoa in a recipe. This is easy to make and has lots of flavor. I think this would also be good with other sauteed vegetables (summer squash, etc). I coarsely chopped the mushrooms and added some salt and pepper to the filling. Other than that, I made this as written and my family loved it. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
