Caprese quinoa bake

A new and delicious way to incorporate 'superfoods' into your diet! Served with chicken and cheese, this quinoa bake is great for the whole family. 



  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup chopped basil, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the crushed tomatoes with the tomato paste, balsamic vinegar and red pepper flakes. Mix well. Add the quinoa, chicken, half of the mozzarella, half of the basil and the parmesan. Transfer the mixture into an oven safe baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. Bake until the cheese is lightly golden and quinoa is hot, about 10 to 15 minutes. Garnish with the remaining basil.
