I love a side dish that is both cheesy and healthy, and this one is it. This broccoli quinoa casserole is packed with nutrition, but also has a just-rich-enough texture to it with white cheddar cheese, and the garlicky crunch of panko crumbs on top completes the perfect bite. It would pair beautifully with grilled chicken, but we ate it alongside sauteed seasoned shrimp for an easy weeknight dinner. It also tastes amazing as leftovers. I enjoyed it for my lunch the next two days.
The recipe follows below. Let me know if you decide to give it a try!
