Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Egg Bake

8 large Egg, Whole
0.33 tbsp Natural Butter Blend
0.5 cup Quinoa
1.25 cup Milk, Nonfat, Fluid
2 cup Spinach
1 cup Parmesan, Grated Cheese
0.5 tsp Salt, Table
0.5 tsp Pepper, Black
1 clove Garlic

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Egg Bake

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8-inch x 8-inch glass or metal baking dish with butter; set aside.

  2. Put quinoa into a fine mesh strainer and rinse until cold running water until water runs clear; drain well.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and quinoa. Stir in spinach then pour mixture into prepared dish. Cover tightly with foil then jiggle dish gently from side to side so that quinoa settles on the bottom in an even layer. Bake until just set, about 45 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle top evenly with cheese. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, until golden brown and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes more. Set aside to let cool briefly, then slice and serve.
