If you'd like to experiment with more flavor, then once the ingredients in this recipe are mixed together, you can also consider adding:
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2-3 cups grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and oil a 2-quart (8x8)square baking dish.
Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add quinoa and simmer with a lid for 15-20 minutes. The liquid should be absorbed and the quinoa will be soft but chewy. Each grain will look like it has popped open.
Whisk the eggs with the salt.
Mix together the cooked quinoa, eggs, cheese and yogurt.
Spread the mixture evenly in the baking dish. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
Cooking with Quinoa
Quinoa is a grain that cooks quickly and has a mild earthy, nutty flavor. Because the flavor is so mild you can add just about anything to quinoa. Quinoa is often served as a cold salad, with different types of raw or cooked vegetables mixed in. Some people also like to mix cooked quinoa with milk, almond milk or soy milk and nuts or dried fruit, so it becomes more of a breakfast cereal. Another way to enjoy quinoa is to bake quinoa with eggs and cheese (to hold it together.) It turns into a delicious and healthy casserole. Quinoa has more protein than any other grain and contains all eight essential amino acids, which makes it a complete protein.
