Caprese Quinoa Bake for Your Tomato and Basil Harvest

Caprese Quinoa Bake for Your Tomato and Basil Harvest

By the end of the summer our gardens are full of tomatoes and basil. Perfect for pasta but another great way to use your garden bounty is in a Caprese Quinoa Bake.

Quinoa is becoming a popular grain, and though it is really a seed, provides that nice base for tasty recipes and combining flavors. More importantly, it is considered a complete protein, provides a good dose of Omega-3s, and fiber, along with a host of other vitamins and minerals.

If you love Italian food, you’ve probably notice Insalata Caprese, or Caprese Salad, on the menu. This flavor profile of tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella is becoming more popular in so many dishes. I love to make a panini with this trio, and as I mentioned before they are great in pasta. It’s no wonder they work so well with quinoa too.
