  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 1 minute or until onion is tender. Add quinoa and cook, stirring, until golden brown and toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups water, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until water has been absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Whisk eggs and milk together in a large bowl. Stir quinoa into egg mixture, and whisk in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Spread in the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Garnish with chopped tomato and green onion, if desired. Serve immediately.

I cooked the quinoa in vegetable broth instead of water doubled the cheese and added breadcrumbs to the top. The recipe didn't specify what temperature to set the oven at so I set it at 375 and kept an eye on it taking it out when the breadcrumbs became golden. Also next time I make it I want to experiment with more spices because it was a little bit bland for my taste. Read More
