Quinoa Egg Bake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by DeeCooks

This is from a Whole Foods newsletter. It's basically quiche-like, but healthier from the quinoa crust and is insanely adaptable with different veggies and cheeses. The ease and health is what I like best.

The quinoa, eggs and milk base works with all kinds of vegetables. I tried pepper, onion and emmenthaler cheese and it was really good.
