Quinoa rainbow chard cheese bake with roast sesame choi bok and chestnut mushrooms ๐Ÿฅ˜

Evening folks,

here's my evening meal, its quinoa with rainbow chard, onion, garlic grated carrot and sweet pepper, in a cheese sauce, cooked with roasted choi with chestnut mushrooms and sesame seeds and roasted in sesame oil.

Choi bok is Chinese white cabbage and contains lots of nutrients including vitamin A and it is very low calorie so one serving is around 20 calories and contain 60% RDA of vitamin A.

I also made an apple crumble with a rice flake crumble for puddin'...๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope everyone enjoys tonight and Happy New Year everyone,

Jerry ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Wow Jerry, that looks amazing. Did you use a recipe or did you create this dish yourself as I would love to know what you used and how much?

Hey thanks Alicia,

I often bake veg in a cheese sauce, this time I used 1 sweet red pepper, 6 leaves of rainbow chard, a grated carrot, garlic and red onion. Less than a cup full of dried quinoa which I cooked for about 12 mins.

I put some V/olive oil in a pan and added all the veg chopped with the grated carrot and cook for 10 mins, while I made a cheese sauce by melting 25g butter and adding 25g flour I use plain GF mix with 1 pint of milk and pour that into the veg add 50-75g grated cheese, I use mature cheddar and mix in the cooked quinoa, mix it all thoroughly and then bake 150C for about 25/30 mins to make the top golden. I seasoned with black pepper and a very little sea salt.

The Bok Choy is a standard recipe where it is roasted in sesame oil with sesame seeds and I added the mushrooms as I'd forgotten to put them in the cheese bake and roasted them for 12/15 mins.

The above would be enough for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children.

This is another one for batch baking and putting in the freezer - glad I switched my spare freezer on. :)
