You could endlessly vary this dish using whatever you have on hand and using different cheese too, or make it vegan and have no cheese. You don't even really have to bake it - its pretty well good to go after you've mixed everything together.
I thought this recipe would be boring. I only made it for a healthy choice and different that my normal steamed vege. When the smell of the garlic was mixed with the warm quinoa (I boiled it in homemade chicken masterstock) it was amazing! My mouth actually watered over a simple grain! I mixed with brocollini, capsicum and Gruyere. Everyone came back for seconds and thirds. Such an easy recipe and I will be making it again - 06 Aug 2010
Yes Trish, the recipe is not vegan. It was a suggestion from the submitter that it could be made vegan by removing the cheese. - 28 Apr 2010
Great quinoa dish that was surprisingly filling. I will definitely make this again - 24 Jan 2011
