Quinoa Crust


Quinoa CrustI made a big batch of quinoa earlier in the week, and I have some left over today.  I was in the mood for a quiche, but didn’t feel like wrestling with a pastry crust (it’s hit or miss for me…).  Since the quinoa was ready to go, I decided to try a quinoa crust.  Surprisingly, it worked on the first try and was really easy to make.  I filled the crust with a mushroom, ramp, and basil quiche (recipe to follow).

Ingredients

1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
1.5 cups cooked quinoa
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Directions

1.  Lightly beat the eggs in a mixing bowl.  Then, mix in everything else.

2.  Press into the bottom (and up sides if desired) of a 9-inch baking dish, or you can use multiple smaller dishes.

3.  Bake at 375 F for 15 mins.  Cool before filling.
