Cheesy Baked Quinoa and Spinach

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Infused Oil or olive oil
  • 2 cups packed fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup lactose-free or non-dairy milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the quinoa and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the spinach and saute just until spinach is wilted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir the sauteed spinach into the cooked quinoa. Whisk together the milk, egg, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add milk mixture and 1 cup of the shredded cheese to the quinoa and stir well.
Transfer to a lightly greased 1.5 quart casserole dish and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake until melted, about 5 more minutes. Serve.
