Baked Vegetable Pilaf

I know for a fact that this main dish/side dish is super healthy because I found it in my Eat-Clean Diet book.

I’m so glad I did because it is most definitely delish. Did I mention this recipe is also sups easy to make?

The perfect trio.

I am really liking these quinoa bakes, if you can’t tell!

  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray casserole dish with olive oil.

Cook couscous and the quinoa.

While the grains are cooking, heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Add onion, carrot, celery, pepper, and corn. Cook until onion is translucent.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked grains and veggies. Stir in vegetable stock and salt. Pour mixture into casserole dish.

Cover casserole dish with lid. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Grains are cooked when all water has been absorbed.
