Directions

  1. Place quinoa in a bowl; pour in enough water to cover. Soak for 30 minutes. Drain and rinse several times.
  2. Bring quinoa, water, olive oil, and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  4. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 4 minutes.
  5. Stir broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, Cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup French-fried onions, sour cream, and lemon pepper into cooked quinoa; season with salt and black pepper to taste. Spoon quinoa mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, 10 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup French-fried onions and bake until topping is lightly browned, about 5 more minutes.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Full of flavors! I did make a few changes-added cauliflower to the broccoli to equal about 2.5 cups; instead of cream of mushroom soup, melted 1T butter with 1T flour then added 3/4 c veggie broth and 1/2 c half and half and simmered for 5 minutes; instead of french-fried onions I used 1/2 c chopped onion, and topped the whole dish with homemade seasoned bread crumbs. We will definitely use this again!

My husband, stepson and I all loved it and went back for seconds. Definitely will become one of our regulars. I halved the amound of fried onions to cut down on fat and calories and opted for 1 medium onion sauteed in a little olive oil instead.

Excellent taste. Not much difference between this and a broccoli/cheese or green bean casserole. Instead of the additional french onions on the top, I used some bread crumbs and added them the last five minutes of cooking as directed. I used maybe 1/3 cup. I just trimmed and steamed the broccoli by placing it in a bowl with a bit of water and cling wrap over the top for 3 min in the microwave. Does the same thing as a steamer insert. I'll use more broccoli next time as I don't think 2 c. is enough for my taste.
