Cauliflower Quinoa Casserole

Don’t you just love the alliteration in the name of this recipe? Wouldn’t my junior high English teacher love that I remember what alliteration is? *sigh* Nostalgia.

  • cauliflower quinoaIn large mixing bowl, combine..
    • 1 head of cauliflower, broken into bite-sized pieces
    • 12 ounces chicken sausage, sliced into rings
    • 6 roma tomatoes, sliced into half moons
    • 1+ T. crushed garlic
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
    • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Bake at 450* for 20ish minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare one 5 ounce box of quinoa according to package directions.
  • Remove from heat and stir in…
    • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
    • salt/pepper to taste
  • Spread quinoa mix over vegetables. Return to oven for ten minutes, until browned.

I most prefer my vegetables roasted, but you know I’m obsessed with casserole. I thought this dish was the best of both worlds:  roasted veggies with a toasty, salty topping. Totally delicious and guilt-free!
