Cheesy Quinoa

This has been a hit in my house! My boys love Mac n' Cheese, I mean why wouldn't they? But this is so much healthier, I can sneak veggies in & everyone is happy! I honeslty cannot remember where I found this recipe, but it has been amazing!!

Cheesy Quinoa!

Serving Size: 8
1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
Veggies of your choice (optional)
Good pinch of salt
A few grinds of seasoning salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large eggs
1 cup soy milk or non-fat milk
1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese, more for sprinkling
Optional- Crushed Red Pepper, Panko Bread crumbs for topping
Toppings (optional) - salsa, hot sauce, sour cream, scallions

1. Lightly sauté any veggies you would like in this dish.
2. Cook quinoa to packaged instructions until fully cooked. (About 15 minutes)
3. Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 13x9 inch dish ( or 8 individual ramekins) with cooking spray. Whisk together eggs 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 30-35 mins, until bread crumbs are browned.
