quinoa risotto

big fan of quinoa, cook with it at least a couple times a week...so, thanks to a couple posts on here lately, I decided to make quinoa risotto the other night - I made it pretty the same as regular risotto, sauteed onion then cooked down wine, added quinoa to coat and fry for a bit then added greens, mushrooms and veggie broth etc.

to me, it seemed to produce basically the same result as if I had cooked the quinoa separately and then mixed in the veggies etc. afterwards...my question to anyone with experience with this is: does it make an appreciable difference to cook the quinoa together with the other ingredients, or is quinoa risotto not really much like a (arborio rice) risotto at all? any tips for making it better than i did?
