Ingredients

    1 cup La Fe Quinoa
    2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian version)
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    2 tbsp La Fe Vegetable Oil
    3 links of La Fe Chorizo Sausage
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    6 cups spinach leaves
    3 tbsp water
    6 ounces cream cheese, softened
    2 eggs
    1/2 tsp La Fe Ground Cumin
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    Salt and pepper to taste
    4 tbsp butter, melted

Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Begin by placing the La Fe Quinoa in a saucepan with the broth of your choice and bring it to a simmer. Cook the quinoa mixture until it has absorbed all of the liquid. This process should take roughly 15 to 20 minutes. Now, remove the quinoa from heat and stir in cranberries. Once evenly stirred, cover the pan and set it aside.

  • STEP TWO

    Following this, add the La Fe Vegetable Oil to a heavy skillet and place it over medium heat. Now, add in the La Fe Chorizo Sausages, making sure to crumble them with a wooden spoon or spatula as they cook. Cook sausages until browned. Now remove the sausages from skillet and set them aside.

  • STEP THREE

    Following this, add garlic into the same skillet and cook briefly over medium heat, until fragrant. Once you complete this process, add the spinach and 3 tablespoons of water, making sure to cook until the spinach is wilted and the water has evaporated. Now, remove the spinach, making sure to drain thoroughly and then chop.

  • STEP FOUR

    After this, preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F. Now, mix the sausage and spinach into the quinoa mixture. Once evenly mixed, stir in the cream cheese, eggs, La Fe Cumin, pecans, salt, and pepper.

  • STEP FIVE

    Make sure to brush the bottom and sides of a casserole dish with melted butter. Now, spoon in the quinoa mixture, making sure not to mash down the quinoa. Top off the casserole dish with remaining melted butter.

  • STEP SIX

    Finally, bake the casserole until it has browned on top. This process should take about 25-30 minutes.

  • STEP SEVEN

    Remove from oven and serve warm.
