    Dandy Lyons's Note:

    Originally, this recipe used kale instead of spinach, but, as I had none on hand, I improvised (not to mention my spinach was getting a little wilt-y). It's pretty inexpensive and easy; it's worth a try. from the postpunk kitchen

      I tried it and while it wasn't inedible it isn't worth making again. The quinoa and flour mixture cooked immediately and became an extremely thick mass and I couldn't mix in the onions and spinach. I used less spinach than called for and used a small eggplant and still the mixture overflowed the 9" loaf pan. The flavour was insipid. It was filling and nutritious and easy to make.
