Cheesy Quinoa Bowl with Sprouts

The Bolton family loves them some quinoa.  Let me tell you!  You would think we would be a little quinoa-ed out from all the new recipes I've been trying, but we're not.  Here is a new one I whipped up last night that was quite the hit!

Cheesy Quinoa Bowl with Sprouts
{adapted from une-deux senses}



2 cups cooked quinoa
3 cloves garlic, minced
4  tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup crumbled French feta cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
shaved Brussels sprouts
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Toss shaved Brussels sprouts in one tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast for 25 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about one minute.  Add the quinoa and heat until warmed and the garlic flavor is fragrant throughout.  Once warmed through, add the Parmesan and heat until it starts to melt, about one to two minutes.  Remove from heat, then stir in the feta cheese, roasted sprouts and pine nuts.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
