Make It Mondays - Quinoa Enchilada Bake

On Zen Wednesday

While I have a few go-to dinners that make it into the rotation regularly at my house (like grilled salmon and veggies or roasted chicken) I do like to try out new recipes at least one or two nights a week, just to keep things interesting. Some experiments come out awesome, some are just so-so, and then there are some recipes I need to tweak to suit my own flavor preferences (I tend to like things spicy or savory, so I’ll often ramp up the spices in that general direction). Tonight’s recipe (quinoa enchilada bake) is based off one I saw on the Skinny Taste website:, which, if you have never checked it out before, has a lot of great healthy meal ideas and is totally worth perusing. I, of course, modified it slightly for my own preferences. This dish also happens to be vegetarian, so in addition to being part of Make-It Monday, it could also fall under Meatless Mondays if you practice going veg once in a while like we do. (If you want to go full-vegan, leave out the cheese and use vegetable broth).

This was a really easy and tasty vegetarian dish that makes plenty for leftover lunches, if you like to brown bag it like I do. Enjoy!
