pinspiration – numero veinte y uno

when i saw this recipe i just knew it had to be made.

cheese-yummy. quinoa-tasty. carrots and broccoli-veggie-y.

i shredded some carrots (plus some more for future use) and minced some broccoli and sauteed them with garlic in butter.

following the recipe, i then added two cups of quinoa and mixed it around for the butter to cover. then i poured four cups of liquid (read: chicken broth) and let it simmer.

when it was done cooking, i added a few cups of cheese, some more butter, a bit of milk, and then mixed it altogether.

here’s a close-up of this dish.

this is definitely a repeat recipe. it’s like macaroni and cheese but healthy. super healthy. paul looked up quinoa and quinoa (3.5 ounces) alone has 14 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber. and if you don’t use all the butter that the recipe calls for it’s even healthier. i should know, i’ve tried it.

hope you try it. and if you do, please let me know how it turned out and if you like it too.
