Loved it! Although, I did add 4 cloves of garlic. I would definitely make this again!

I used sharp cheddar and threw in an extra handful and it was really good! Not quite as good refrigerated and reheated, though, so eat fresh if possible! Could also use a little extra flavor.

As someone who cook both of these foods quite often I was very disappointed with this recipe. It came out bitter and quite sour. This could have been from a multitude of factors. Either way, this will not be a repeat dish.

It was good but a little tasteless, i’d try again but add some onion or something like this to add more flavor

Really good! Used red quinoa instead of regular which worked really well
My first time doing quinoa really yummy recipe you can add a bit of herbs to make it more flavorful or maybe some garlic.

Super yummy! I didn’t change the recipe and I served it with sloppy joes. Great side for a lot of lunch/dinners.
Allison 12 Apr

Great it’s really yummy and flavour is there if you want a stronger flavour u can add more cheese
Super tasty! I like it
Sooo good! I make a big batch every week and have a cup for dinner. I didn’t flavor with salt and broth but still turned out delicious!!

Loved this! quick, easy and healthy
THIS WAS SOOOO GOOD. I had to add quite a bit of salt but it was really good

make this all the time, quick healthy meal.
Delicious! Used tri-color quinoa, “better than bouillon roasted chicken base,” broccoli with all the stem, and Quattro Formagio instead of cheddar. Tasty & nutritious!

Pretty good, but it does not look appetizing at all. It also needed more flavor, even though I used the broth.
Susan R. 19 Sep 2017
Good, but Velveeta is much better than grated cheddar. It melts more evenly.
Naomi B. 7 Sep 2017
Super delicious!!! I forgot to add any salt or pepper at the end, but it came out delicious anyways! Both husband and in-laws loved this healthy, easy side dish.

Better than I thought! Didn't need to add any salt. Plenty of flavor with the broth. I doubled the recipe and it turned out great
Aline L. 13 Aug 2017
Pretty good. A nice way to get some fiber and veggies in to dinner.
Sophie Thelen 22 Jun 2017
It was a bit bland for my taste, even after adding a bit of garlic powder and minced onion. I added lemon pepper while eating it and it was great!
Liz C. 30 May 2017
Amazing!! I added some almonds, garlic salt, sunflower seeds to give it some crunch
Hayley Gonzalez 25 May 2017
Hubby said it was Restauraunt quality! I added a little more cheddar (mixed a very salty cheddar with a sharp) and threw in some minced garlic and onion powder. Did NOT season with salt and it was PERF! So delish it's going to be a staple
Rochelle Joubert 2 Apr 2017
Delicious I would definitely make this one again I would absolutely suggest not adding salt as mine was a little too salty
Fekete 24 Jan 2017
Quick, easy, and delicious! I added some spices like a little cayenne for a kick and shredded chicken to make it a meal
Page 10 Jan 2017
This is a great quick and easy meal to make. I love mac n cheese and this is definitely a much healthier alternative! I think I will add some more veggies and spices next time.

Amazing! Super easy to make and tasted delicious, I used Gouda cheese instead and it turned out great.
