Quinoa.

This was my first time trying this.  We like most grains and pulses, so were keen to try it.
I chose this recipe, which sounded amazing here.
Now, this didn't go exactly according to plan.
First off, I couldn't get the scallops, or mustard leaves, and I forgot the rocket to substitute.
Never mind though.
Other than that, I went with the recipe, but the quinoa tasted horribly bitter.  I don't think I did anything wrong.
To rectify it, after searching through the cupboards, I added a big slug of kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce).
That worked.
We really enjoyed it, though it wasn't quite as the recipe states, but then not many of my dishes are!
