I am always impressed with how quinoa soaks up the flavors of whatever it's cooked into and this casserole is certainly no different. It's got all the fixings of a burrito bowl which has been my thing lately. I love too how it's such a filling meal. I've made a few recipes close to this one, but I believe they were slow cooker. This one takes a little over 30 minutes to make and it's so good!

What you need:
  • 1 cup quinoa

Directions:
  1. Cook quinoa in 2 cups water according to package directions and then set aside.
