Veggie and Quinoa Quiche cups

Veggie and Quinoa Quiche cups

This delicious Quiche cup alternatively uses Quinoa instead of your traditionally unhealthier version of quiche crust.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cooked Quinoa
  • 6 Eggs (organic)
  • 2 cups sauteed Organic Kale
  • 1/4 cup sauteed mushroom
  • 1/4 cup Sauteed red pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder, Pepper, Sea Salt (I use Himalayan)
  • Daiya Vegan Shreds (optional)

These are free from dairy, but of course you can tweak this recipe to your liking.

  • Boil Quinoa for 15 minutes until tender
  • Saute Kale, Mushroom, red pepper and onion together in skillet with olive oil, add garlic powder and sea salt.
  • In a non-stick muffin tin (spray with olive oil first), use a mister (not the canned sprays as these sprays have propellants in them) and mist each muffin tin.
  • Scramble eggs in a bowl
  • Start by layering each ingredient in each tin, placing the egg lastly.
  • Top with vegan shreds (Daiya) and bake at 350 for 20 minutes

Done. These can be done with just egg whites if you wish –  but made as is it has only 133 calories for each cup and 10 grams of protein! Make them organic if you can.

      Thanks Celeste! You can also use it to make a big quiche with eggs or a vegan egg substitute!
