I make baked eggs a lot, close to every week. Recently, I started adding quinoa to my baked eggs for a little bit more nutritional value. Quinoa + Eggs = Quinoa Baked Eggs. After making salmon for dinner Sunday night and having lots of leftovers, I decided..”what the hell.” I added some salmon to my Quinoa Baked Eggs Recipe to get Salmon Quinoa Quiches.
…Because that’s what they are really. The quinoa is the like the crust of my quiche and well…everything else is everything else of the quiche ;)
I wasn’t going to pos this recipe because I feel like it’s one of my “weirder” recipes, but I posted it on my facebook page and got a really good response.
Plus, I got a really cute plate from Anthropologie for like $3.00 and have been waiting to show it off! Love me a good deal.
salmon quinoa quiche
- -6 eggs (organic and free-range preferred)
- -1.5 cups cooked quinoa
- -4 oz cooked salmon
- -Salt (to taste)
- -Pepper (to taste)
- Preheat oven to 350F and gently wipe a muffin pan with coconut oil or olive oil non-stick spray. Line the bottom of each muffin tin with quinoa about an inch deep and shred some cooked salmon on top. Then, crack an egg on top of each. Sprinkle the top of each egg with the remaining quinoa and garnish with salt and pepper to taste. Hint: you will want to use about 1/4c quinoa total for each egg.Using a fork, work the egg between the quinoa to ensure that it will not fall apart. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the egg has hardened completely.
Viola you have a Gluten Free Salmon Quinoa Quiche.
I promise it’s as easy as it sounds. If you make these for a brunch, you WILL WOW your guests.
Whambam. I am on my way to celebrate a late Christmas with my family in Colorado skiing! I am lucky enough to bring Blake and Carly with me :) They are part of the fam…
For a little refresher…my parents moved from my hometown in Milwaukee to Cleveland, Ohio, my sister goes to law school at Colorado University and my brother is doing his undergrad at the University of Colorado. Then there is me. I live in Minneapolis. For my sister and I, Christmas was spet at our significant other’s family’s houses…a big change from normal Christmas.
That is that. I’ll report back from Beaver Creek, CO!
Any foodie/ski tips in the Beaver Creek Area?
