Perhaps you have already come across the feta trend. Under the hashtags #bakedfeta or #bakedpasta, you can find thousands of posts on Instagram, TikTok & Co. It’s enough to make your mouth water!
No longer a new phenomenon, but I still dared to the trend and tried it myself. However, with quinoa instead of pasta!
The recipe is super simple and consists of only a few ingredients, feel free to get inspired by my recipe!
Baked Feta With Quinoa – Feta Trend Times Differently
Who says you can only do the feta trend with pasta? I have brought in a little variety and implemented the trend with quinoa. So simple and yet so good!
Quinoa is not only delicious but also offers many health benefits. The so-called pseudocereal is considered a high-quality vegetable protein source and contains, among other things, important minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc. A true superfood! In addition, I personally can digest quinoa very well, so I love it very much.
With Only a Few Ingredients to Your Baked Feta Dish
For the recipe, you need only a few ingredients. In general, you can also vary here.
You should have the base there, of course: Feta and quinoa. A baking dish and an oven would not be bad either and then you can start with the delicious baked feta recipe.
By the way, it is also a very practical recipe: while the dish is baking in the oven, you can easily do something else in the meantime and not have to stand in the kitchen for ages.
Is the Recipe Suitable as a Meal Prep?
Even though the recipe itself is very simple and doesn’t require much effort, you can of course pre-cook or bake it and still enjoy it the next day.
I also like to make a little more or double the portion, so that I have still some leftovers the next day. This always saves a lot of time, especially during a stressful period, it is very helpful!
Which Ingredients Can Be Substituted?
Quinoa: Of course, you can also use something else. Pasta goes of course also. 😉 Or even rice would be an idea. There are actually no limits to your creativity here.
Vegetables: I personally love broccoli from the oven. Hm, so delicious! But of course, you can also use your favorite vegetables. With zucchini or peppers, it is certainly also very tasty.
How To Prepare the Baked Feta With Quinoa
Preheat the oven to ~390 °F (200 °C).
First, put the quinoa in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse it well under water.
Then first put the quinoa in a small baking dish (for one person) – then the feta.
Wash and cut the vegetables and add them. Then pour everything with vegetable broth. It should be well covered, but also not float to the top. Add spices of your choice – e.g. salt, pepper, oregano.
Put in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes.
