Product Review: GoGo Quinoa - Granissimo Pilaf

As you know I received a few different products from GoGo Quinoa to review. Last week I reviewed the Granissimo Paella and this week I am going to review the Granissimo - Basmati & Wild Quinoa Pilaf.  Did you know that GoGo Quinoa is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization?

A quick rundown on the Pilaf. It is organic, gluten free and vegan. A great source of Iron, the Pilaf contains 5 grams of protein per serving. This 200 gram box has a suggested serving of 4.

We actually used this as a side dish and in hindsight I regret that decision. Don't get me wrong. It was delicious, although the kids didn't care for it nearly as much as I did. In their defense it is bland and they probably won't appreciate that as much as I do for another 10 years. Not to mention the oldest has been tremendously picky as of late. I blame his current tween phase for this finickiness. I added a little bit of homemade Greek vinaigrette for flavor and I really enjoyed it, of course that inspired me to think about how delicious this would have been mixed with a Greek Salad and stuffed into a nice giant pita. I'm drooling just thinking about it. You could stretch it further that way too. Again, like the Paella, I loved the consistence.
