I'm gonna give it to you straight, this Quinoa Quiche is bad to the BONE.
Like, slap me silly and call me Willy, good. Like, spread your wings and FLY, little bird, good. Like, call your broker, good.
It's dang good.
It's interesting though because this quiche is more dense (denser? more dense?) than your run of the mill eggy bake concoction. It's load-ED with red quinoa, mushrooms, red bell pepper and baby spinach. AKA: incredible hulk food.
But you won't turn all green and bulky. That's actually really frightening.
Make this this weekend! OR ELSE.
You got your quinoa, (and by the way, you can use regular if you can't find red) the shallots, spinach, red bells and shrooms.
And of course eggs. I only show 4, but I ended up needing 6. Go figure.
Cook your quinoa! KEEN-WA. See those spirals? That's good.
Get your veggies sautéed.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl and then add the veggies.
Then dump that quinoa in.
OH! Add cheese, for the love. Sprinkle in some salt and peppa, too.
Pour that there mixture into that there Pillsbury pie crust.
Baaaake, bake bake.
Slice her up and garnish with more cheese shavings. Please do this.
I could snuggle right inside that quiche, I tell ya.
