Tasty Thursday – Healthy Mac & Cheese

This is another fab find from Pinterest – healthy mac & cheese! The main substitute here is the mac. Instead of using carb-loaded pasta, substitute with power food quinoa! The cheese and veggies (substitute with any veggies you’d like!0 make these just as comforting as the original classic. I served this with chicken on the grill and a homemade BBQ sauce (recipe coming soon!) and a fresh arugula salad.
Ingredients
– 1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
– Halved cherry tomatoes
– Chopped broccoli
– Chopped onions
– Pinch of salt
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 large eggs
– 1 cup skim milk
– 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
– 1/2 cup grated fontina cheese
– Crushed Red Pepper
– Panko Bread crumbs
Directions
  1. Lightly saute broccoli and onions in olive oil
  2. Cook quinoa to packaged instructions until fully cooked. (About 15 minutes)
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 13×9 inch dish with cooking spray. Whisk together eggs and milk in large bowl. Fold in quinoa mixture and cheese. Stir very well and let some of the cheese melt.  Transfer to prepared baking dish top with red pepper and Panko bread crumbs. Bake 30-35 mins, until bread crumbs are browned.
