Expert Tips

  • To cook quinoa: add 2 cups of uncooked quinoa to a pot full of 2 cups broth. Cover and cook at a simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. Remove and cool. Fluff with a fork.
  • To make this vegetarian: use vegetable broth of choice in place of chicken broth in this recipe.
  • If there is one flavour combo that encapsulates summer, it’s Caprese salad. And while a plate full of fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes is always a delicious option, here’s one more: a Caprese-inspired bake, with quinoa mixed in for added plant-based protein. Consider it the healthified summer version of a cozy pasta bake.
  • A delicious one-dish dinner, or perfect side dish for potlucks, this recipe pairs beautifully with everything from grilled chicken to a crusty loaf of French bread, served with olive oil for dipping.
  • Try tossing in leftover rotisserie chicken before baking for a heartier meal. Or stir in fresh grilled corn for extra seasonal flavour.
