How to make a quick and tasty quinoa dish with pesto

One of our favorite things about quinoa is that so many flavors go well with it. Tri-color quinoa and organic sorghum pasta meet Basil, Parsley, Sun-Ripened Tomatoes, and Chickpeas for a tour of Italy that is bursting with fresh herbs in our Keen One Pesto Pasta Quinoa Cup. One of our recipes were inspired by colorful orange cherry tomatoes we found at the store, and we thought they'd make a great colorful salad! The sweet and crisp apple slices go well with the red beans and sweet potatoes in our Jamaican Jerk quinoa cup. Keep on reading to see our recipes on quick and tasty quinoa dishes with pesto!
