More About This Recipe

  • 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. Slice her up and garnish with more cheese shavings. Please do this. I could snuggle right inside that quiche, I tell ya. Health, y'all!
