Make a Delicious Quiche with a Healthy Quinoa Crust
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 6 Slice
Author: Tony Bailey
  • 2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
  • 5 Eggs
  • 6 ounces frozen spinach
  • 3/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  1. Beat one egg and combine with the quinoa in a mixing bowl and then spread evenly into a round, well greased 9-inch pie pan
  2. Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 375 degrees (perfect for toaster ovens)
  3. Cook the frozen spinach in a microwave and let it cool while the crust cooks
  4. Beat the 4 remaining eggs and mix in the milk
  5. Into the crust, place the spinach and then the cheese. Pour in the eggs. Some will likely leak through the crust, that's ok.
  6. Into the same 375 degree (toaster) oven, cook the quiche for 35 minutes. Start checking around 30. To test for doneness, use a fork or toothpick, stick in the middle and see if it comes out clean.
