Cheesy Quinoa

Okay, so I got the original recipe from  However, I did make several changes and I changed the name because the original blog gave you the impression that this was going to be like mac n cheese but with quinoa and I didn't feel like it was but it was still very good.  So here's the recipe how I made it.  Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups of chicken broth 
  • good pinch of salt
  • a few grinds of seasoning salt
  • 1  clove of garlic, minced
  • 1  egg
  • 1  cup milk
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese, more for sprinkling
  • Optional Panko Bread crumbs or crushed ritz for topping
Cook quinoa using chicken broth and garlic according to package instructions. (About 15-20 minutes)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 13x9 inch dish or large casserole dish with cooking spray.Whisk together egg and milk in large bowl. Fold in quinoa mixture and cheese. Stir very well and let some of the cheese melt. Transfer to prepared baking dish and if using Panko Crumbs or Bread crumbs add now and bake 20-25 mins, until bread crumbs are browned.
