excellent... or mouldy

This is really nice (you wouldn't really eat it on its own, just as you wouldn't normally eat rice alone). But I'd hesitate to buy it now because we keep getting mouldy packs, like maybe 1 in 6 of ours have been mouldy. You can often see it's mouldy through the window in the pack, but yesterday's looked fine, until I poured it into the salad bowl only to see that the central parts were mouldy (ruining all my other ingredients). Merchant Gourmet are aware that this sometimes happens and sent vouchers for their products last time, but you can only use them in store - no use if you can't get out much. Surprised no other reviewers have mentioned it, so maybe we've been unlucky.

Terrible taste

Overseasoned and tastes rank, while simple cooked quinoa without added flavours would be perfect.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Good texture, terrible taste

Difficult to get a good texture with quinoa but this doesnt taste nice at all. I'll stick to cooking it myself!

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Quick and easy supper - just add roasted Veg and I mix in some Rose Harissa too to give it a kick

Rating: 5 star out of 5
