  • 1 1/2 cups white quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2-3 cloves garlic

  • 1 1/2 cups vegan cheddar shreds (plus more for topping if desired)
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika

  6. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients with the cooked quinoa (and flax egg if using). Mix well.
  7. Add mixture to a 9×13" baking dish (lightly sprayed if desired). Spread out evenly and lightly press down. Sprinkle additional cheese on top if desired.
  8. Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
