  • Bring quinoa and water to boil in medium saucepan; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender.
  • Meanwhile, cook corn, red onions and peppers in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 5 to 6 min. or until tender, stirring frequently. Spoon into large bowl. Add beans, salsa verde, cilantro and 1/2 cup cheese; mix lightly.
  • Fluff quinoa with fork. Add to bean mixture; mix lightly. Spoon into foil-lined 13x9-inch freezer-safe baking pan sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining cheese. Cover with plastic wrap, then foil. Freeze up to 2 months.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap frozen casserole; cover loosely with foil. Bake 1 hour 20 min. or until heated through, uncovering after 1 hour. (Or, thaw frozen casserole overnight in refrigerator, then bake [uncovered] in preheated 350°F oven 35 to 40 min. or until heated through. Or to omit the freezing step to serve casserole right away, bake [uncovered] casserole in preheated 350°F oven 25 min. or until heated through.)
  • Top with sour cream, green onions and tomatoes before serving.

Mindful Eating
