Hearty Vegetarian Main Dish Great for a Church Potluck! You can use any kind of cheese to top this casserole. Our favorite is Jalepeno Jack Cheese.

This was a tasty way to eat quinoa. We really liked the fresh herbs and balsamic vinegar in it. I used a vegan jack cheese and served it with a side veggie for a delicious vegan meal. Thanks for posting
