Mmmm my Andean soul wants to try this!

Yummmmm! My African soul wants to try this too!
Will let you know how it goes.

Natalia -- a touch of home? Did you make it in Bolivia?

Fatou -- let me know how you like it!

Hi Margy - A question. Do you have to rinse the quinoa first? I bought mine in a bag from Whole Foods and the rinsing process was a pain because our fine mesh strainer is not fine enough. We ended up putting a coffee filter in the strainer. But I am wondering if we can bypass the rinsing altogether. Your experience???

Hi, Anita,

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have stopped rinsing rice and small lentils for that same reason. And I did not rinse the quinoa. It cooked up well, and I count on the cooking process to purify the quinoa. Enjoy!

We love this recipe - we have alot of arugula right now and wanted to freeze the pesto - any thoughts on freezing the pesto?

Hi, Noreen, I have not frozen this pesto, but I have frozen basil pesto many times. The color turns a bit darker, but the flavor is still great. I usually omit the cheese for freezing and add it after the pesto has thawed, but I have heard from others that they freeze it with the cheese too.
