Claire, I made this tonight and it was really good -- quiche without crust! I used frozen mixed veggies (broccoli, peppers, onions, etc.) in it to get more veggies in there, and I love it! I'm cutting it into servings and freezing it, so I hope I can just take one or two out and put them in the microwave for a little while--that should work. So, thanks!:bcb_up

Clarification: cooked quinoa, or uncooked? :bcb_smile

Is the posted recipe above from Whole Foods?...:bcb_smile

 

So in the cooking time, do the little threads pop-out (making it look just like regular "cooked" quinoa cooked in water/broth)?

This recipe is a keeper. I used uncooked quinoa. The Whole Foods recipe suggests running the quinoa under cold water thru a "fine mesh strainer" until the water runs clear. Not sure if that is really necessary but I did in case.

 

This recipe is great to keep in fridge or freeze as already suggested and would make a nice breakfast or add a salad and it is a nice lunch or dinner.

 

I used the ingredients below (I only had 7 eggs and it was fine).

 

Thanks for the recipe!

 

(WWCarol - hope you are felling better!)

Quinny, I made it the 1st time with uncooked quinoa and all of it rose to the top -- I didn't do the "shake 'n bake" thing.:bcb_grin And I used only 5 eggs (all I had) and it turned out fine! And I had forgotten about all the great recipes at Whole Foods -- thanks for the link!:salut

 

BTW, running water over the quinoa removes the outer coating, which can be bitter.

I've never eaten quinoa in my life but this looks like it might be a good place to try it. I had a heck of a time finding it in my backwards town, it just recently showed up in my grocery store after years of searching.

 

I'm always looking for portable breakfast recipes.

 

I'm going to give this a shot sometime this week for next weeks' breakfasts.

Sharyn, you live in a little hick town, too, huh?! :) I find most of my "good" stuff either at Kroger's or online, especially Amazon. And sometimes, Big Lots has unusual things like quinoa in their gourmet section. Ever tried there?

Trader Joe carries quinoa. Do you have one in your area?

I agree that washing quinoa is important as it's a "grass" so it has a bit of a grassy taste if it's not rinsed. For that matter, I find that the sweet quinoa recipes don't work as well since it always has that hint of taste. But a savory quinoa recipe, like this one, is just :bcb_up !

LOL Donna, I have NOTHING in my area. Nothing.

 

But actually, my local grocery store all of a sudden started carrying it. I saw it last week for the first time ever..and I've been doing WW and Core for over 3 years now.

 

I was so excited, I snatched up a box, brought it home, then realized I didnt have a clue what to do with it.

 

So now, I do :)

 

BTW, we don't have a Kroegers here either, and the closest BigLots is 20 mins away, in the neighboring town

I froze most of this in portions after I cooked it. I took some out this evening for dinner and it freezes very well! :bcb_up

Dagnabbit! I forgot to chop up the spinach so now it's taken over the egg bake in the oven because I *also* forgot to cover it in foil!! :crazy: Oh well, I'll do better next time! :bcb_up

Kimberley :bcb_grin .

 

I made mine with broccoli, green beans, peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc. (frozen veggie mix) along with the spinach, and it was like a veggie pie! Tastes even better after it was frozen, too.

Did you all defrost the frozen veggies first or just throw them in there frozen?

(Thanks, Quinny. Slowly I'm getting better...)

 

I thought there is a protective bitter coating on the quinoa. Some boxes apparently don't have it, but most quinoa does.:bcb_yuck:

 

I put it in a mesh strainer and then swished it in a bowl of clear water. Had to do that many times before it was clear...

 

Putting it under running water didn't seem to be working as well~ :wave:

I do not rinse either the package or the bulk quinoa and do not have any problems with it tasting bitter.

Sharyn, I just put the frozen veggies in there as is. Next time, I think I will run them under warm water to get some of the frost off them and then drain because they may have contributed some excess moisture to the dish. But they got cooked just fine!

 

Here's a good article about quinoa, which says that most of it that is packaged and sold has had the outer coating removed, but that we should rinse it in case any powdery residue of that coating remains -- probably just a cautionery move. It also suggests toasting the quinoa in a skillet before cooking -- hadn't thought of that!! http://www.wholehealthmd.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?nm=Reference+Library&type=AWHN_Foods&mod=Foods&mid=&id=D18F2C4462B74726B0C2D1FD8A8A65B8&tier=2
