NYCFitFam’s Quinoa Quiche Muffins

Ok, so we love eggs and have always loved the idea of quiche, but when it came to actually eating it, that was a hard NO. Cream as a primary ingredient? We don’t think so – not in this family! We knew there had to be a better way to indulge in some cakey egg-y goodness without the guilt. Voila! We present to you: Quinoa Quiche! It’s a delicious little treat that ticks every box and is super easy to make. Enjoy!!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
  • Optional: 1/4 zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Cholula hot sauce

 

Directions

  • Cook the quinoa according to package directions.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk the egg and egg whites together. Then combine all ingredients except zucchini in a bowl and mix to combine.
  • Line your muffin tin with seven liners and spray with cooking spray. Divide the mixture evenly among the seven muffins.
  • Run zucchini through a vegetable spiralizer (optional)
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown. (Optional: Place zucchini spaghetti on top of each quiche after 20 min or when they become mostly solid, then replace in oven until completion)
