Dinner tonight

Just a quick post today because I absolutely HAD to share this recipe! My family is still new to quinoa so I have been trying recipes with familiar flavors and this one was fantastic! It tasted a whole lot like broccoli cheese soup, only it’s quinoa and pretty healthy. I  would love to say the whole family loved it, although my picky daughter wouldn’t even look at it, but hey 3 out of 4 isn’t bad anyway.

I made a few changes to the original recipe, I think it just adds that much more flavor and appeal.
