Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 cups quinoa, uncooked
3 cups water
1/8 tsp salt
8 oz low-fat sharp cheddar cheese
2/3 cup evaporated milk (or half and half)
5 tbsp Smart Balance® Original Buttery Spread
1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

Recipe Steps

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Place the quinoa in a mesh strainer and rinse with cold water for about 2 minutes.

Place the quinoa, water and salt in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat and simmer until cooked, about 20 to 25 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, cheese, evaporated milk and Smart Balance® Original Buttery Spread. Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and breadcrumbs have turned a golden brown.

Serve warm.
