My recipe below includes a few small changes to the original by Martha Rose Shulman . In addition to adjusting the amounts a little, I’ve suggested cooking the quinoa with some stock or bouillon as it gives it a richer flavor (though you can just use water.) I’ve also increased the amount of cheese the recipe calls for (though you could scale back if you want to err on the side of lower fat, lighter dairy, etc.,) as we both felt it would have been even tastier with a little more melty goodness. And since Gruyère is a pretty pricey cheese, I’ve suggested substituting cheddar for the additional cheese. It’s a very flexible recipe, though, so feel free to adjust. Enjoy!
