Quinoa Casserole

What you need: 

3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
2 medium sized potatoes, sliced
2 medium sized peppers, chopped (green, red, yellow, or your choice)
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms (or 1 small can)
1 can mixed beans, drained and rinsed
1 can tomato sauce (herbed, or your choice)
3 + cloves garlic, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
curry powder to taste
chili powder to taste
1/4 - 1/2 block of grated mozzarella soy cheese to top

What you do: 

I arbitrarily threw this recipe together for dinner one evening for my vegan partner, my meat eating Aunt and cousin, and they all went back for seconds!
This is especially good on the second & third day for lunch, served with bread, as it thickens nicely!
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Prepare quinoa according to package directions with vegetable broth and 1 garlic clove.
3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix all chopped vegetables, beans, garlic and spices.
4. In a large casserole dish, layer quinoa on the bottom, followed by the vegetable mix.
5. Pour can of tomato sauce on top of Casserole.
6. Sprinkle desired amount of soy cheese on top of casserole.
7. Bake for 1 hour (or until potatoes are soft).
Is nice served as a main dish with a side salad, and vegan bread!

I was a pretty skeptical about this recipe as I would never have thought to put these ingredients together but this actually ended up being really really delicious! I substituted chickpeas for beans, vetoed the mushrooms, and doubled the quinoa. I didn't double the tomato sauce (I used plain) but next time I definately will. I also added a little bit more curry to my individual bowl after cooking. The only problem was baking with quinoa for an hour caused some slightly burnt and very stuck on food on the dish. Next time I'll probably add some extra veggie stock to the quinoa layer before baking to prevent this. Overall: VERY worth making!
