Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Casserole Recipe is packed with vegetarian protein, chock full of vegetables and super easy to make. If you love spinach artichoke dip, you will love this creamy bake.

I love quinoa casserole because it is quick. If you are trying to eat less meat this spinach artichoke casserole recipe along with black bean quinoa casserole is for you. It is hearty, filling and full of flavours. I used an entire box of pre-washed baby spinach. I truly love the convenience of washed organic greens. Spinach shrinks a lot, so don’t be scared by the amount this recipe calls for.

And please don’t judge my pot. It is my favourite Lagostina pot which outside goes bonanza in a dishwasher. And who can give up a dishwasher?!

Enjoy this delicious spinach artichoke quinoa casserole as much as we did! You might also like my quinoa chicken pot pie and ground turkey quinoa casserole.
