Broccoli & Cheddar Quinoa Casserole

Broccoli, cheese, mushrooms and quinoa casserole – yummy, 100% gluten free and so easy to make. Gluten free, full of protein, pumped up with vitamins, try my healthy version of broccoli & cheddar casserole!

Gluten Free Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

Some fun tricks and tips that make this casserole come out so good:

  • Boil the quinoa in water just like pasta (for 12 minutes) and then drain. This keeps the quinoa moist and prevents it from drying, especially when used in a casserole.
  • Use real cheddar cheese or full fat cheese. Lowfat cheeses don’t melt as nicely and can burn. Avoid very hard cheeses, like Parmesan  they also tend to burn easily when baked.
