Quinoa Mac & Cheese – A Pinstrosity

I’ve been fighting a cold for a few days, so I’ve really been craving some comfort food. Specifically, mac and cheese! I didn’t have any pasta, though, so I had to improvise.

This box of quinoa has been hiding in the back of my pantry since my vegan challenge, because I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it. Luckily, Pinterest had an idea! (Oh you didn’t know that I’m on Pinterest?! Heck yeah I am!)

Except…it was a pinstrosity!

What should have been a glorious concoction of melted cheese, crunchy bread crumbs, and yummy comforting goodness.

Turned out like this:


The cheese was solidified on top. The bread crumbs were soggy. If you dug underneath all of that, it was ok.

But it was not mac and cheese. 🙁

Sorry, quinoa. Guess I’m just a pasta girl at heart.

  1. I also would have thought this would have worked and am slightly disappointed that it’s a flop. I love pasta, but am a believer that pretty much anything smothered in cheese has potential 🙂
