Cheesy Vegetable Quinoa Bake

This recipe was a HUGE win! With just one bite, Nate the Great declared this one his new favorite (he didn't even mind that there was broccoli in it - just for the record...he now eat broccoli, spinach, artichokes and onions...he wouldn't even touch those a year ago!) Oh, and for any new readers out there, Nate is not my child..he is my husband...and yes, he is just that picky! ;-)

This is the only picture I got...because this meal went REALLY fast!

So the best part about this recipe, is that you can put whatever veggies you want in it. The original recipe said it was a "mac and cheese" type recipe, but I didn't put enough cheese in it to make it such. I am trying, key word, trying, to use slightly less cheese in my meals. Now might be a good time to mention that although I used less cheese in this one, it still contains a ton of dairy - a cup and milk and two eggs! If you make this one and modify it to be a bit healthier in terms of the dairy, I would love to hear back from you so I can give it a try!

Cheesy Vegetable Quinoa Bake

1 cup quinoa cooked
1 cup chedder cheese
1 cup skim milk
2 eggs
broccoli chopped
spinach chopped
red onions chopped
salt to taste
red pepper flakes to taste
panko as a topping (optional, of course)

As always with my recipes, easiest directions ever. Cook quinoa. When it is done mix up all the rest of the ingredients and put in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with panko, if desired. Cook for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees. ENJOY!
