Broccoli & Cheese Quinoa Casserole

Quinoa is superfood packed with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and more. We love it- especially in casseroles. It’s hearty and filling and extremely versatile. It can be eaten savory and sweet- as casseroles, muffins, breakfast cereal, fried ‘rice’… Seriously. There are so many ways to eat it.


This casserole is really easy to make. Prep takes a few minutes to cook the quinoa and roast the broccoli, but actual hands-on time is pretty low. This is a healthier, more nutrient-rich version of a classic. I hope you love it!
