Cheesy Quinoa

I'm kind of in love with food. You might never guess it from the way I look, but I really love to eat! I just started working out again and suddenly I'm starving... all the time. Awhile ago when I was trying recipes all the time I tried one for Quinoa Mac and cheese (I always have to say Qwinoah in my head when I'm trying to spell that...), and it wasn't bad, but honestly... I didn't really love it.

So I made up my own recipe. This is kind of a non-recipe recipe, but it's pretty hard to mess up.

What you'll need to make 1 cup (Uncooked) Quinoa:

  • Quinoa
  • Cheese
  • 1 Can Chicken broth
As far as what you'll need to cook WITH I just use a pot and a wooden spoon. You can even mix it in the pot. :)

Instructions:
Cook your Quinoa according to package directions (I should probably state right here that I don't follow the package directions, but that's mostly because they changed them. I rinse my quinoa, then put it in 2 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil and boil until the liquid is gone, or almost gone (about 15 min). Then turn off the heat and cover for 5 minutes.)
Grate cheese into the quinoa, adding gradually while stirring to desired cheesiness. I like mine REALLY cheesy :) Basically one part cheese to one part quinoa.

Enjoy!
