Expert Tips

Swap out the mushrooms for a package of mixed vegetables or cooked artichoke hearts.

Quinoa is a perfect ingredient for casseroles and other easy, quick and delicious dishes. Add even more color and texture to your recipes with red or black quinoa; which tend to be firmer than white quinoa. With this incredibly practical and versatile recipe, you can easily swap out a few of the ingredients for whatever you have on hand to make your own casserole. It can even be baked ahead of time for days when you know you’ll be in a pinch around mealtime. If you don’t like shrimp, make a vegetarian version. Add more veggies to the quinoa, and it will taste just as delicious!

Serve with tostaditas and a small, cherry tomato salad.

Directions

  • 1 Wash the shrimp and set aside.
  • 2 Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • 3 Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the mushrooms until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a plate.
  • 4 In the same frying pan, fry the onion and garlic. Add the evaporated milk, stirring until reduced. Incorporate the white beans, more salt and pepper, and the reserved mushrooms. Add the quinoa, and stir.
  • 5 Pour casserole preparation in an oven-save container and garnish with raw shrimp. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake for 15 minutes or until hot and the shrimp has changed color.
  • 6 Serve, and enjoy!
