Looks good, but how is it clean? It has meat (stock), oil, and dairy (cheese).

Thanks for this comment. I have often wondered about this myself, but after completing a lot of research, I've found that clean eating really means something different to everyone. If you are interested in my definition, check out this link: http://www.topateonyourplate.com/2014/01/top-ate-clean-eating-recipes-part-i.html.
In addition, I didn't label this recipe as a clean eating recipe, although it was grouped with several other quinoa recipes that are clean. I could see how you might think this!
In any case, thanks for stopping by!
