Made this a few times and everyone loves it. I was low on quinoa so I mixed it with wild rice, it still came out perfect.

Tried this as my first Vegan dinner recipe and it was really great! This was also my first experience with eggplant and quinoa.  I was pleasantly surprised and my non-vegan family even liked it.  I did put veggie mozzerella on top with the parmesean. Thanks so much!

This one didn't work out great for me I'm afraid...
I grilled the vegetables (simply because I love the flavour of grilled and roasted vegetables) before putting them into the dish, and I loved the combination of the veggies, quinoa and cheese, but the pasta sauce on top just didn't seem to work so well with the rest for me. I had the leftovers for lunch today, and scraped off the pasta sauce layer, without which I really enjoyed the other ingredients - so it *has* left me with a combination of ingredients I will definitely have again, for which I thank you :)

Amazing!!!!! For the veggies I only had eggplant and mushrooms.  I added mozarella cheese instead of parm, sprinkled nutritional yeast in the layers and topped with bread crumbs.. this was delicious and super simple!!!
