    2. Heat coconut oil over medium-low heat. Lightly saute the mushrooms and onions. Do not overcook.
    3. Thaw or blanch peas. Add peas to mushrooms and onions and toss together in pan.
    4. Add cooked quinoa, the mushroom, onion, pea mixture and cheese sauce to a lightly greased casserole dish. Stir until thoroughly mixed together.
    5. Bake covered at 350' for about 15 min. Remove cover and bake an additional 5-10 min. Serve and enjoy!

    6. You could use broccoli instead of peas for a more traditional broccoli and cheese casserole. Another tip is to make extra cheese sauce. It is a perfect dairy-free sauce to add to other veggies, or dishes throughout the week. It also makes a great dipping sauce for crackers or tortilla chips!
