This is a recipe my Mom made ALL the time when we were kids and we always devoured it. However… she always used rice instead of quinoa (feel free to do it the original way with rice if you aren’t in the quinoa mood). I wasn’t sure how it would come out with the quinoa instead of rice.. but I loved it! I hardly noticed a difference at all (and neither did my 2-year-old). If you aren’t the biggest fan of quiona and want to ease your way into making it a part of your diet, this quinoa casserole is a good place to start. Oh and another added note.. this also tastes great if you do 1 cup of Greek yogurt instead of the 1/2 c. mayo & sour cream.
