Original # of Servings: 8

Total Time: 60 minutes

Active Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • ½  cup quinoa
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • ½  tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 large eggs (1 whole, 2 egg whites)
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse black pepper

 DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375.  In a medium saucepan, add quinoa, olive oil and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil. Once stock comes to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook quinoa for 10-15 minutes or until stock is absorbed and quinoa is “pearled”. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
  2. In a bowl, whisk eggs, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, until well mixed.
  3. Mix in the egg and cheese mixture to the quinoa. Gently mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Spoon mixture into a glass pie dish, making sure to spread mixture evenly.  Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake quiche for 25-30 minutes.
  6. To check that the quiche is done, stick a toothpick in the center. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the quiche is done.
