I have tried to eat more healthy lately and have been shocked by how many good recipes I’ve had thus far… including this!
What you need:
1 cup cooked Quinoa
6 egg whites (1 cup)
1 cup diced spinach
3 slices of Peppered Lunch Meat
1/4 cup Soy Sation Cheddar Cheese (I am shocked to even admit this is good, but it is)
Mix the top ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Looks a little weird and is a little goopy, but it works.
I like using muffin wrappers because it helps keep them together and then they come out of the pan easier without using oil. You pour the mix into the muffin cups, or lightly oiled tin and then pop those babies in the oven at 350 degrees for about 25-35 minutes, or until the outer part of the little “quiches” are browned. Let them cool for about 10 minutes in the pan and then take them out and you’re all set to go! I love making a batch for the week, and usually eat one or two a day for breakfast with a smoothie. They work best if you put them in the fridge to congeal together and the reheat them. If you try to eat them right off the pan you get some cheesy paper, which I don’t mind.
They take me about 10 minutes to prepare, the hardest part is cracking all the eggs to get the egg whites, and then they bake from about 35 minutes. I am a big quiche fan, and they are relatively similar and much better for you, especially with Quinoa, which I didn’t even realized I liked!
Wonder what I will make for next Monday… I think it’s time to bake again!
