Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa


Quinoa is one of my favorite ingredients. I have been cooking it for years. Packed with protein it is something I like to make a lot and keep in my fridge for easy lunches. I find that it fills me up, satisfies me, and keeps me full for a long time. It keeps my cravings down because of it's pasta/rice  like texture too. This is a simple recipe that is really scrumptious and healthy! 


Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa

1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups Cauliflower, chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
Fresh Parsley for garnish

Add quinoa, and broth to a large pot.

Cover and bring the quinoa, broth and Cauliflower to a boil over medium heat. Add Cauliflower reduce the heat and simmer covered until the broth has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender,about 15-20 minutes.

Mix in the cheese, let it melt and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve hot! This easily reheats. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
