Vegetable Cheddar Quinoa Quiche“An uncomplicated, effortless dish. Mix it up and create your own version by substiting your favortie vegetables for the broccoli.”

Footnotes

  • Quinoa flour is totally worth the effort to find as it is a complete protien with all 10 essential aminos. If you have a Kitchenaid Mixer, you can buy a grain mill attachment for under $100. I grind my own flour from Quinoa. Super easy!
