baked quinoa & veggie casseroleyouAlright, first things first: I am NOT in any way an expert in the kitchen. Although I do recognize that sometimes I can make decent food too, especially when I’m starving to death and left with no choice! 😂

Having said that, I’m quite a lazy cook so I prefer fast and yummy recipes—something I can prepare in maybe less than an hour. Thus, I personally find boiling, stir-frying, and baking most suitable for me and my needs.

I tried quinoa for the first time and tell you what… I’ve no regrets! I just took everything else I had in my fridge that time, popped them all in the oven, and voila—one super easy, quick, and healthy quinoa casserole. I hope you guys can try to make one too so here you go with my simple recipe!
