Broccoli turkey bake

I was going for a good comfort food recipe, and found it. :)

1 lb turkey breast tenders
2-3 cups broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cups cooked rice
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup frozen, sliced mushrooms
1 cup milk
1/3 cup light cream (15 percent)
1/4 cup porto wine (opt)
1/2 to 1 cup shredded Gouda (or other mild cheese)
1 Tbsp butter
2-3 cloves crushed garlic
2 cubes chicken bouillon
Salt and pepper

Cook rice and quinoa.

Steam the broccoli until just bright green.

Slice turkey into bite-sized pieces. Cook in butter over medium heat until white all the way through. Add garlic, porto and mushrooms and cook until half of liquid evaporates. Add milk, cream, bouillon, pinch of thyme and two dashes rosemary. Once it begins to thicken, stir in cheese until melted.

In a large baking dish, stir together rice, quinoa, sauce, and broccoli. Spread out evenly, then broil 5-10 minutes until browned.
