Bolognese Quinoa Bake

I’ve been way too into quinoa bakes as of late which is probably partially to do with my slight laziness right now but if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life I would probably pick quinoa bakes. It’s honestly the best thing when it gets to dinner time and you can just take pre-prepared quinoa out the fridge grate some cheese on top and bung it in the oven, I also don’t feel bad having a "lazy dinner" because quinoa and veggies are healthy, win win!
I’m not really sure why I’ve never thought of this before, wheat is not my best friend but bolognese is my favourite and why just put bolognese on top of quinoa when you can add cheese and bake it in the oven. I really wouldn’t put it past me to try “add cheese and bake it in the oven” to everything.

This is a good way to switch up your leftovers rather than just eating spaghetti bolognese a few days in a row, not that I would be opposed to that, but if you have a little wheat issue or get bored of the same thing two or three days in a row this is perfect and you can add more vegetables which I’m always up for too, although I used peas because they're my lazy vegetable of choice.
You will need
55g/⅓ cup quinoa + water for cooking
2 scoops of left over bolognese (about 300-350g)
½ tin of tomatoes
a few handfuls of peas (about 100g), fresh or frozen
Mature cheddar, grated

Recipe for the bolognese is here

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6 Place the quinoa and water (I used 235ml/1 cup) in a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer until all the water has boiled away then set aside with the lid on to fluff up.
Once the quinoa has rested for about 10 minutes add the bolognaise, tinned tomatoes I usually blend them but that’s optional and the peas, you don’t need to heat or cook any of these, peas straight out the freezer are fine. Mix everything until it’s combined and divide into two baking dishes. Top with grated cheese and a few lumps of fresh mozzarella and cook for 30 minutes.

If you’re not eating all the potions that day put the quinoa mixture in the dish cover with cling film and refrigerate. When you’re ready to eat it, top with the cheese and bake in the oven at 200C/400F/Gas 6 for 40 minutes.
