Literally don’t know what you are waiting for to go and make this DELICIOUS quinoa bake! It’s such a creative way to use quinoa (that can sometimes be boring) and you have a combination of AMAZING flavours without compromising on the calories 😉! Let’s get to it 👇🏻.


1 onion

1 garlic clove

3 big mushrooms

1 grated carrot

50g red beans

2 tbsp tomato sauce (or purée would do)

80g cooked quinoa (30g uncooked quinoa = 80g when cooked).

15g grated cheese of choice (parmesan was used here)


Pre-heat your oven to 180•

In a heated pan add the sliced onion, the minced garlic clove and mushrooms. Cook in 1 tbsp olive oil until brown.

Add in the carrot, the red beans and the tomato sauce. Let it simmer for 10 mins.

Add in the cooked quinoa and stir well.

Transfer your mixture into a baking tray and sprinkle with grated cheese.

Put it in the oven for 20 mins.

And it’s ready! You’ll thank me later 😉

Until the next recipe,
