A Recipe for Wednesday: Broccoli-Quinoa Casserole

My sister in-law actually made this recipe first, and now it is a family favorite and I absolutely love it! (Beside the fact that it does make your house smell like broccoli...)  It is something fun, different, and delicious!

One 10 oz can condensed Cream of Broccoli soup (or mushroom)
1/3 cup mayonnaise 
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/4 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, colby-jack, etc)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
A dash of nutmeg
2 cups cooked broccoli
1 1/2 cups  COOKED quinoa (see note)
Grated Parmesan cheese

3/4 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small saucepan combine the quinoa, water, and salt.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to low and cover.  Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until fluffy and the white ring/tail is visible. 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a shallow casserole dish
In a large bowl combine the soup, mayonnaise, milk, shredded cheese, Splenda, pepper, and nutmeg until well mixed. Stir in the quinoa and broccoli.

Spoon mixture into prepared casserole.  Sprinkle on a couple tablespoons of Parmesan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly on the edges and golden. 

B.T.W.  School is officially over in 10 days!!!  And I have the worst motivation ever to do anything, good thing I only have one final right?
