One pan of this veggie-packed 21 Day Fix approved breakfast casserole and you’re set for a week’s worth of breakfasts! It makes five HUGE servings of protein-packed meals. Just reheat briefly in a microwave. Quinoa adjusts so well to the flavors of whatever it is cooked in, but it compliments the rest of the casserole and makes it more filling and adds more protein. Cottage cheese gives it even more protein.
