    Absolutely delicious! I made my own veggie stock and used hazelnut oil instead, adds a nice nutty flavor. Ended up baking the salmon because my husband isn’t a fan of poached. We will be making this again soon.

    This recipe is positively divine! We’re chowing down right now and I just had to share. It’s so perfect, however I did change a few things. I only ended up using about half the liquid called for. Maybe it was the quinoa I used? I also ended up baking the fish instead of poaching. I only had half the kale I needed so I substituted the rest for spinach. Lastly I had fresh parsley on hand and used a bit of that, it went very well. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    • Hi Jill,

      Thanks for coming here and letting me know how you liked the quinoa risotto. I’m so glad you didn’t let your pantry stand in the way making this. I love hearing about the variations people make to recipes. Things like your comments and the swaps you make really make my day. This is why I write this site. :)

  • [...] should you use?  Yes, rice.  Although there are several recipes that use other grains (like my quinoa risotto), actual risotto is made with rice.   Arborio, Carnaroli or Vialone Nano.   These are all short [...]

    I’m doing the CLEAN detox as well and its going great. I’m on week three though and eager to try new food. I just tried this recipe tonight and it was DELICIOUS!! Thank you so much for the great recipe.

    • I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. While I was on the cleanse my husband even ate this and really enjoyed it.

      February 01, 2010
  • So – how did the CLEAN detox go for you? I’m working on it right now, first “official” day is today, although I ate only from clean recipes for the last two days, and yesterday didn’t have a solid meal at dinner. I just don’t count those days because I was weaning myself off of caffeine. But I’d like to know – how did it work for you? Do you feel better/different?

    • Hi Alta.

      I can’t say enough good things about the CLEAN detox. It went really well for me. My main goal was to do it to prepare my body for some surgery I had last fall. My healing time was dramatically reduced and, as a bonus, I lost 12 pounds (that I’ve kept off).

      January 27, 2010
  • Looks phenomenal, Pamela! Got some risotto sitting in the pantry. Gonna have to give it a go!

  • [...] Probably due to the lack of coffee in my system since I’m now on day 3 of my self-imposed detox.  It doesn’t help that I’m writing this post about the yummy Arancini we had on New [...]

  • Wow, I might have to check out that detox program, cause this doesn’t look like “diet food” to me, it just looks like tasty food! I want to try to make a “risotto” with quinoa this week, I love your take on it!

    January 03, 2010
    • That was probably why I was actually able to stick with it.

      January 04, 2010
  • I love quinoa – this has got to be grand. Yay for you and your ten pounds. Yay for health resolutions – even if you get off the wagon, it remains there for you to get back on!

    January 03, 2010
  • Love it! I can’t wait to try this. Healthy ingredients, and I love any recipe that uses quinoa. Thanks!

    January 03, 2010
  • Awesome awesome awesome! I love everything about this recipe and post… I always wondered about using something else for risotto and quinoa makes it practically guilt free! Best of luck on round two of the cleanse and fabulous idea for a tasty dish

    January 02, 2010
  • Well Salmon is one of my favorites and this one looks like a winner! Thanks for sharing :)
