This a wonderful quiche recipe from Goya Foods. I have made this with both spinach or kale, which also can be purchased frozen and chopped.

- 1 medium onions, thinly sliced or 1⁄2 cup onion
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1 lb frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat cream cheese, softened
- 8 large eggs, lightly beaten, I use Egg Beaters
- 1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1⁄2 teaspoon adobo seasoning, with pepper
