Ingredients
  • 1 lb broccoli
  • 1.5 cups quinoa
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • ½ medium onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cream

Instructions
  1. In two large pots, boil water. Once the water is boiling, put the quinoa in one and a steamer with broccoli in the other.
  2. While your quinoa is cooking (set a timer for 12 minutes), heat the butter in a saucepan.
  3. Dice ½ an onion, slice your mushrooms and add them to the butter and cook until the onions are browned. Add more butter if the pan starts browning.
  4. Add 1 cup cream to the onions and mushrooms, stir and remove from heat.
  5. When your time goes off (12 minutes), drain the quinoa, turn the heat off on the broccoli.
  6. Grease a medium glass baking pan with butter.
  7. Put the broccoli into the glass pan and chop up a bit until the pieces are no larger than 1".
  8. Pour the creamy onion & mushroom mix into the pan and stir.
  9. Add the drained quinoa and mix well with ½ cup of shredded cheddar.
  10. Cover the mixture with the remaining ½ cup of cheddar and bake at 250F for 10 minutes or until the top is browned.
