First, rinse and drain the
Quinoa (1/2 cup)
to wash away the bitter outer shell. Use
Chicken Stock (1 cup)
to either cook it on the stovetop or in a rice cooker.
In a pan, melt the
Unsalted Butter (1 Tbsp)
, low and slow.
Whisk in the
Unbleached All Purpose Flour (1 Tbsp)
for 1-2 minutes to draw out the raw flour taste.
Slowly pour in the
Milk (1 cup)
. Bump up the heat to medium and whisk constantly to prevent lumps. As it cooks, it will thicken.
Aged Cheddar Cheese (1 cup)
Broccoli (1 cup)
Add cooked quinoa. And mix well.
Transfer to a casserole dish, cover with more cheese.
Then cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
