A fabulous way to introduce yourself to quinoa. I finally tracked down some quinoa after hearing so much about it. It's easy as to use, tastes great and good for vegetarians and vegans as it's high protein. Also gluten-free.
You could endlessly vary this dish using whatever you have on hand and using different cheese too, or make it vegan and have no cheese. You don't even really have to bake it - it's pretty well good to go after you've mixed everything together.
I added an onion, extra garlic, stick of celery, 200g quinoa instead of 170g to this recipe, and a pepper for flavour and colour. It was v straighforward to make and really delicious. My children loved it more than I thought they would, they both asked for 3 plates of dinner each! I really enjoyed making this and it made plenty for 4 of us its healthy and fairly cheap to make. The quinoa cost £1.30 for 300g in Lidl - 26 Mar 2018
I really like this. It's so simple to make and very tasty. - 19 Nov 2013
I thought this recipe would be boring. I only made it for a healthy choice and different that my normal steamed vege. When the smell of the garlic was mixed with the warm quinoa (I boiled it in homemade chicken masterstock) it was amazing! My mouth actually watered over a simple grain! I mixed with brocollini, capsicum and Gruyere. Everyone came back for seconds and thirds. Such an easy recipe and I will be making it again - 06 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
