Quinoa is a pretty versatile food that can be used in multiple ways. I got bored of using it the bog standard way as a substitute for rice so I started having a look for other ways to incorporate it into my day. One of the ideas that I kept coming across online was a Quinoa Bake.



This Quinoa bake is quite simply one of the easiest things you can make and it will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
