I saw this recipe on Pinterest and tried it last week. Quinoa was EXPENSIVE so I used barley. It tasted delicious! I'm not sure what the difference between quinoa and barley is, so I'm not sure if my way had less nutrients in it or something.

Thanks so much for sharing! I am gluten free and I love quinoa. But my bf isn't so crazy about it, so I'm always looking for new recipes he may enjoy. I'm betting he will love this. In fact, I'm headed to the store now for leeks and Philly cheese!

Wow. Never ever thought of anything like this, but I love mac & cheese, but using quinoa instead of noodles...brilliant!

^^ This! I cannot wait to try this out - thanks for the post!

Sounds good!

Fun! I'd like to try with egg sub and see how it goes - less calories and lots of food is always good.

One of my favorite quinoa recipes:

It's quinoa chicken salad. It has the grapes and almonds like a chicken salad would have, but with no mayo. It's GF/CF and a little high in calories (350), but filling and high in protein.

For the record, I tried the quinoa and cheese recipe posted in the first post and it's REALLY good. Many thanks to the op for this because it's super tasty. I did a few substitutions and added some spices. Here was what I changed:

-Switched bell pepper for 2 medium carrots (shredded)
-Switched soy milk for skim milk
-No bacon (I don't care for it)
-No sour cream
-Sharp cheddar cheese (Kroger brand)
-Added the following spices for flavor: Paprika, chili powder, white pepper, curry powder, cumin, poultry seasoning, celery salt

Though I should report that mine came back with 290 cal per serving (serves 8). I still can't figure out how, especially without the bacon, mine came back with more calories. Either way, totally worth it.

you can find it near the grains at the grocery store. I buy mine at trader joe's and whole foods. My parent's buy theirs at Jewel/Dominicks.
