Neither of us had tasted quinoa before, although I had purchased a bag of it some time ago. We found it delicious and it certainly is nutritionally impressive as well.
I didn't have red peppers on hand, but substituted chopped mini peppers since I had a bag of red/yellow/orange ones in the fridge. I don't think it could have been any better with just the red ones. It was very flavorful. I also left out the corn. I was going to be roasting the veggies while we were out for a walk, and didn't want to have to think about adding the corn halfway through. I used some extra chopped yellow peppers to compensate for the color the corn would have added.
The recipe suggested serving this dish with lemon wedges. I wasn't going to bother, but we had lemons on hand so we did squeeze some onto the dish. It added a really nice flavor note, and I will plan to serve the lemon wedges with it every time.
Perhaps your family would enjoy this delicious main dish as much as we did!
