Absolutely amazing dish! She was genius to try this!
You remember this dish… from every church pot luck, community cookbook, and Gramma’s table. Yes, THAT broccoli-rice casserole. Bubbly, cheesy, rich, and so very good. Old-fashioned comfort food, personified.
Since I love using quinoa in everything calling for rice (less starchy, more protein) I thought I’d give it a try in this one. And it worked just as well. As you can see in the second photo, it’s the same creamy-dreamy texture and flavor we loved before – only this time it’s not full of rice-carbs that can wreck havoc with blood surgar. AND the quinoa gives added protein. How ’bout that?!
I can’t believe how great this turned out! It’s the perfect side dish for all your meats or a vegetarian option on it’s own. The old version was a favorite in our house – and now this will DEFINITELY be!
