"This was a great addition to my "Meatless Monday" endeavors! My hubby AND my 2 yr. old liked it. I loved it! It has made the rotation! I added about 3 cups of broccoli to it, but other than that I really didn't change a thing about the recipe. I served it with fruit and the whole meal was a hit.
THANK YOU for sharing!!!"

Momiitz 3 weeks agoI have been trying to make more meatless meals for my family. This was my first time cooking with quinoa. This recipe was great. It was very easy and quick to make and the whole family liked it. This one is a keeper.
IronChefChachi 3 months agoGood dish but fairly blan for my liking. Would make again but would add some more seasoning - more s&p, and would try adding some garlic, etc. and maybe some mushrooms. Could also try with some of the cheese as pepperjack for a little kick!

Thekidsmom1224 10 months agoI liked it; tho my family wasn't crazy about it. I'll try it again without the broccoli (maybe use carrots) and I think they will be fine with it.
AZClaire 11 month agoI make this all the time! However, I add pulled pork to it, although not mixed in. I put the casserole ingredients into the cooking dish, then I push it apart into 3 separate parts. I fill the 2 empty spaces with the pulled pork. (So I have a stripe of casserole, then pork, then casserole, then pork, and finally casserole!) This allows the flavor from the juices to soak into the casserole and yet keep the protein as a separate plate item. I found that when I mixed the pork with the casserole, it didn't set up firmly and was a gloppy - but very tasty! - mess on our plates. Yum yum yum
NellyO 1 year agoSuper good. Will make again and again.
LindaS1111 1 year agoI used prewashed quinoa. Gouda cheese, instead of cheddar. Didn't add any spices. Turned out excellent.

Erincpeters 1 year agoAwesome! Didn't precook broccoli, added mushrooms, and used gouda instead of cheddar. Accidentally skipped spices but was still very tasty...husband went back for thirds!
tm4girl 1 year agoThis was very good, even my super-picky boyfriend liked this!! Forgot the paprika though... Will try adding some of the other suggested veggies and remember the paprika next time!
bibidahl 1 year agoLove this dish but tweaked it a bit by using more onion, which I carmelized. Then added garlic, mushrooms, broccoli and sauteed til mushrooms were cooked. After baking for 20 mins, I raised the temp to broil and browned the cheese on top - yum!!!
clever22 1 year agoWas delicious and easy! I added more broccoli, probably about a cup more. I also added red peppers 'cause i had them. Next time I will add mushrooms and black beans and try cooking the quinoa in chicken broth. Yum!
