I recently had some fresh broccoli left over from my Chicken Broccoli Casserole and used it in this oh so simple (and delicious!) side dish for Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa.
I love the combination of broccoli and cheese in just about anything, or by itself. Cheese is one of many of my food weaknesses, and if I can figure out a way to add it to a recipe… I’m on it.
I initially thought quinoa was a grain, but learned that it is actually a seed. It does, however, have a grainy taste and texture. The creaminess of the cheese and slight crunch of the broccoli makes this a perfect combination… not to mention it’s prepared in 20 minutes and in ONE pot!
