Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups chopped broccoli

  • 1 (10 ounce) can low-sodium cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup French-fried onions

  • ½ cup light sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup French-fried onions

Directions

  1. Place quinoa in a bowl; pour in enough water to cover. Soak for 30 minutes. Drain and rinse several times.

  2. Bring quinoa, water, olive oil, and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

  4. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

  5. Stir broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, Cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup French-fried onions, sour cream, and lemon pepper into cooked quinoa; season with salt and black pepper to taste. Spoon quinoa mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, 10 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup French-fried onions and bake until topping is lightly browned, about 5 more minutes.
