This easy, gluten free spinach artichoke quinoa casserole tastes like spinach and artichoke dip in a healthy, weeknight dinner form, that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Cauliflower Alfredo sauce makes it extra creamy!
Oh tangy artichokes, combined with ooey-gooey salty Parmesan cheese and tender spinach, how do I love thee?
AKA: super smooth and luscious, melty cheese swimming in CREAMY, secret-hidden-vegetables-say-WHAA-garlic-y sauce, vibrant, FRESH, HEALTHY spinach and bites of tangy artichokes allllll swirled around with chewy quinoa.
I was one of you. I was on the outside of the cauliflower-can-do-all-things secret circle. I mean, I was pretty on board with cauliflower mashed potatoes and you KNOW I love me some cauliflower rice, but sauce?
BUT temptation in the form of Pinterest happened. Real talk: If you see 32 bazillion cauliflower sauce recipes on your screen at once, something in your brain flips and tells you to MAKE IT RIGHT NOW. EVERYBODY IS DOING RIGHT?The fear of missing out? This girl. RIGHT HERE. FOMO.
F-I-N-A-L-L-Y stubborn Taylor was all “let’s just do this thang and prove to everyone that they are wrong and I am right about this sauce-y shenanigans”
Peeps. I’m gonna put my big-girl-pants on and admit: I was W-R-O-N-G.
There’s this odd thing that happens when you put a little bit of roasted garlic (<3 <3 <3) tender, golden brown onion, a dash of salt and pepper and a few healthy Tablespoons of salty stock into a blender….then add cauliflower. It’s odd in the fact that you’re eating pureed vegetables are you’re TOTALLY okay with it. Like, on its own. Maybe it doesn’t even need to be a sauce?
Preeee much we need to just pinky promise that we will all make this for dinner tonight mmkay?
I meannnnn, there is just so much goodness that your face needs to be IN ON.
