Pizza Quinoa Casserole

Happy Friday!   Reward yourself for making it through the long week with some pizzaaa…or at least with this healthy alternative, using a recipe found here, on Natural Noshing.

I made a regular sized casserole, but filled up two small ramekins as well, just for a cuter, personal pan pizza feel!

Grocery List

  • Quinoa (1-2 cups)
  • Tomato paste (4 oz can)
  • Garlic (a few cloves)
  • 1 Onion
  • Olive oil (2 tablespoons)
  • Fresh basil
  • Can of roasted diced tomatoes
  • Cheese
  • Basil spice
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Artichoke hearts (1 jar of quartered hearts)

Cook the quinoa; mix up your tomato sauce; combine all ingredients; grease a casserole dish and fill it up with the quinoa; layer with artichoke hearts and cheese (I tried out almond cheese, it’s quite good!); bake at 350 for about 30 minutes; top with fresh basil.  Full directions here on Natural Noshing.  *Next time I make this I will be sprinkling cheese and chopped basil throughout the entire thing, rather than just on top.
