Quinoa Mac n Cheese

I love having comfort food, but most comfort food isn't good for us. However, I am putting a comfort food spin on a healthy grain. This little dish literally hits the spot and is so much better for you. Portion control is key though, don't over do it!


Quinoa Mac n Cheese

1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
1 cup of water
3-4 oz of shredded low fat cheddar cheese
Pinch of garlic powder

1. Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
2. Let quinoa cook at a light boil for 11-13 minutes, stirring frequently
3.Sprinkle cheese on quinoa once quinoa is cooked and a dash of garlic salt

Mix together and enjoy! This should make enough for two servings, it is typically used as a side dish!
