Superfoods Make Super Fuel

Who says eating healthy can’t taste good? This week’s recipe includes quinoa, a superfood that is both high in fiber and high-quality protein. Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is 100% whole grain, but is technically the ancient seed of a leafy plant related to spinach. It’s also gluten-free!

Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Artichoke Spinach Dip’s healthy cousin, Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Casserole:

A recipe from Making Thyme for Health’s kitchen, this makes a light and satisfying meal. From start to finish it took less than an hour, and the leftovers taste even better. Even the meat-eating Husband approved! I will be making this again and recommend serving it with green salad, meat eaters might prefer this as a side dish (I know The Husband would).

My version does not include yogurt because I didn’t have any, but I don’t think the casserole noticed:
