Quinoa Mac & Cheese

17 Mar

I know it isn’t the most beautiful looking meal ever, but it sure was YUMMY!

I know it doesn't look all that pretty but it is delicious! Quinoa and broccoli Mac and cheese #cookathome

I used this recipe from Tasty Kitchen.

I fully planned on making it exactly like the recipe but this was the last meal on my menu for the week and some of the ingredients I thought I would have on hand had magically disappeared.

We used the last of our spinach and parmesan yesterday, so instead of topping it with the parmesan, I just added regular cheddar. I did use the aged white for the bechamel so it was still a two cheese dish.

Also, I ALWAYS forgo the bread crumb topping. It just isn’t my thing. I am a sauce person and those pesky bread crumbs absorb all of my darn sauce and make things taste dry so if you prefer crumbs, go right ahead.

I know it looks like I baked my broccoli in the dish but I actually just steamed it on the side and mixed it in on my own plate but I bet you could just bake it in.

It tasted like broccoli cheese soup!

Through tiny people's tantrums, quotidian duties, marriage, grief, and way too much Netflix, there is Beauty with a big B. It's fragrant, it's healing, it's distinct. This is how I gather bouquets of thorny, wild Light - still covered in dirt and probably a few stinging bugs. It's a bit messy here, but I'm honored to have you and I hope you find some of the Good Stuff.
