This recipe is a prime example of what a typical weeknight meal looks for us, it can be whipped up in under 25 minutes!

Plus it seriously tastes like mac & cheese except with upgraded ingredients to give it a nutritional boost -- protein-rich quinoa, steamed broccoli and a plant based cheese sauce.
