Brussel Sprout Cauliflower Quinoa Bake

Tonight’s dinner is a quick pantry/freezer bake inspired by a recipe Inspiralized post a week or so ago. I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I altered it and came up with this super yummy bake. It’s veggie and protein packed, gluten free, and absolutely delicious.

I gave this to the girls and they were unsure of it at first, but they eventually ate it (minus the sprouts). I don’t blame them though. I didn’t come around to Brussels sprouts until I was an adult. They can be scary! But, they are absolutely dynamite in this bake. Trust me! Check it out and let me know your thoughts!
