Happy Weekend, DDScottville Peeps!
Here's another one of my fave Vegetarian Recipes - Black Bean and Quinoa Casserole
Another perfect dish for your #MeatlessMonday meals or your #MeatlessforLife lifestyle!!! And if you're worried about getting your protein? Don't! The black beans in this dish gotchya covered!!!
I found this little gem on Pinterest, thanks to the Yankee Kitchen Ninja
1 cup quinoa - cooked per package instructions (usually 1 cup quinoa and two cups of vegetable broth set to boil then cover the pan and reduce heat to simmer or low for about 15 minutes)
4 cage-free, organic eggs
1/2 of 15-oz can of black beans, rinsed
3/4 cup organic cottage cheese
1/3 cup sliced green onions
2 T gluten-free flour
1 t organic baking powder
1/2 t sea salt
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use Daiya)
Salsa and avocado for serving
Preheat oven to 375
Prepare quinoa and set aside to cool a bit
In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs then add the beans, cottage cheese, green onion, flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until well-combined
Fold in the quinoa and add the mixture to an olive oil sprayed, 8" x 11" casserole dish.
Sprinkle the top of the casserole with the cheese and bake for about 25 minutes (until the cheese melts and the casserole is beginning to brown).
Serve with salsa, chopped avocado and/or guacamole
Yummy and super-easy, right?!
