    2 tsp olive oil
    1 cup diced tomato
    1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
    good pinch of salt
    a few grinds of seasoning salt
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup Egg Beaters
    1 cup almond milk
    2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup Parmesan Grated Cheese
    1 cup sliced Jalapeno Peppers


Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add tomatoes & Jalapeno Peppers (or any veggies you want really); cover and cook 5 mins. Stir in quinoa and garlic, and cook, uncovered, 3-4 mins, or until grains start to turn opaque. (They will not fully be cooked yet.) Add 3 cups water and season with salt and the Seasoning Salt. Cover and reduce heat to med-low and simmer 5-10 more, or until most liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand 5 mins.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 9x13 dish with cooking spray. Whisk together egg beaters and almond milk in large bowl. Fold in quinoa mixture and cheeses. Stir very well and let some of the cheese melt. Transfer to prepared baking dish and bake 30-35 mins.
