Are you on a healthy, low-carb, low-sugar diet but you're still craving those comfort casseroles? It can seem like there's no hope. That you're never going to have a rich, delicious dish filled with creamy goodness again. But, that's actually not the case. As the recipe that follows shows, you can have all that goodness and all that cheesiness, without feeling any guilt at all.
The secret lies in quinoa. The beautiful thing about quinoa is that it feels like a grain, and it acts like a grain, but it's actually a protein. That's right. Quinoa isn't a grain at all, but actually a seed. A seed that's chock-full of protein. So when you add it to this dish, that already has lots of protein and tons of cheesy goodness, you're really just upping your health game, not going against it.
