I know quinoa is good for you, or at least better than rice or pasta. I just have never found a quinoa recipe I like. I have come across many I tolerate, and the underwhelming looks on my family’s faces when I make them is a telltale sign that they are not enthused either. Regardless, I never gave up! My quest to find the perfect quinoa dish (outside of breakfast oats which it is delicious in) was underway. Lucky for me, I won with the very first dish I tried – cheesy quinoa.
When I saw that it was like macaroni and cheese I knew there was a good chance it’d be a winner all around. I mean, who doesn’t love mac and cheese? It uses uncooked quinoa which makes it easy, and there are only four ingredients! Believe me when I tell you it doesn’t taste like only four! Plus, it uses mozzarella cheese which is a little different than your traditional mac. You could easily switch to cheddar.
