I found this recipe on myrecipes.com when I was searching for recipes that use quinoa. My family really likes tilapia, so we have it alot.
I really enjoy cooking with quinoa. It is so fast and we love the taste and texture.
This is a really fast dinner and very delicious. I used mostly red quinoa and added cumin to the vegetable mixture. I also used canned, diced tomatoes because I didn't have any fresh tomatoes.
I cooked the vegetable mixture a little bit longer than the recipe called for just because I was waiting on the fish.
Overall, we really liked this recipe. It was a nice twist on fish and veggies.
