I just happened by accident to come across this recipe on a quilting message board! Why is it you find some of the best recipes on the most obscure sites online?? I wanted to do something cauliflower-ish in the crockpot, and that recipe was rice and cauliflower + cream of mushroom soup. Since I haven’t had cream of anything soup in forever, I decided to wing it and see how it turned out!
I changed out the rice for quinoa, and just added cheese on top. I thought a cheesy cauliflower bake sounded good.
This turned out soooo amazingly good, and so simple! I couldn’t believe how the cauliflower cooked down in the crockpot!
Quinoa and Cauliflower Bake
Print this recipe!
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 cup uncooked quinoa
3 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup gouda cheese (or your choice of cheese)
Combine the quinoa, cauliflower and vegetable stock in a crockpot. Turn the crockpot on low, and cook for 6-8 hours.
About 30 minutes before you want to eat, add the cheese, and stir to combine.
I mean, it really doesn’t get much easier than this. I admit I was a little leery a couple times during the day when it was cooking – I didn’t think the quinoa would cook up, but it did! I just think this tastes so perfect – it doesn’t need anything else in my opinion!
Beautiful cauliflower! Happy Monday!
