    cup chicken broth, divided

  • 1-½

    cups dry quinoa, rinsed very well under cold running water

  • 2

    cups small broccoli florets

  • 4

    Tablespoons butter, divided

  • 8

    oz sliced mushrooms

  • 1

    shallot or ¼ small onion, chopped

  • salt and pepper

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    Tablespoons gluten-free flour (see notes for brand used)

  • 1

    cup milk (I used 2%)

  • 3

    oz freshly shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 3

    oz freshly shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with nonstick spray then place on top of a baking sheet and set aside. 2.Bring 2-3/4 cups chicken broth to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan then add quinoa, place a lid on top, turn heat down to medium, and then simmer until nearly all the liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, 20 minutes. Add broccoli then place lid back on top, remove from heat, and let steam for 10 minutes. 3.Meanwhile, melt 2 Tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and shallots, season with salt and pepper, then saute until mushrooms are golden brown. Add garlic then saute for one more minute. 4.Add remaining 2 Tablespoons butter then sprinkle in flour when melted and saute for one minute. Slowly stream in remaining 1 cup chicken broth and milk while whisking to avoid lumps. Season generously with salt and pepper then bring mixture to a bubble while stirring constantly. Turn heat down to medium then simmer until thick and bubbly, 5 minutes. 5.Remove from heat then stir in the broccoli and quinoa, and half the cheese, then scoop mixture into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top then bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Let sit for 10 minutes before scooping and serving.
