Super Food Recipe: Greek Spinach-Quinoa Casserole

Mediterranean-Quinoa-Casserole-4Following is a delicious super food recipe incorporating the super foods spinach, which is a high source of iron, and walnuts, which are filled with omega 3 oils.

This casserole is so simple to make, yet I’ve gotten rave reviews. I love Greek flavors, so I blended them with healthy, high protein quinoa for a comfort food treat.
